Pot: ø 12cm.

Light: Bright, filtered sunlight in their native environment, in the home I would recommend near an east facing window for some morning sun. It is important for the plant to see the sky in order to thrive.
Water: Given adequate light, keep the potting mix evenly moist; water when the top inch of mix has dried out.
Potting mix: A rich, well draining mix composed of coco coir, perlite or vermiculite and worm castings.
Fertilising: Feed your plant each to every other watering during the growing season or when you observe active growth. You can dilute fertiliser to half the recommended amount but never add more.
Humidity: Coniogramme prefer higher humidity (over 60%) but adapt well to average home humidity. You can increase humidity by placing the plant on a watered pebble tray or using a humidifier.
Coniogramme emeiensis is toxic, keep out of reach of pets and children.
