  • Home care: It doesn't have many needs, as long as you find a bright spot away from direct sunlight, not close to a heat source like a radiator and away from any draughts it will usually be happy. Once it has the right place try not to move it as they don't like being moved around. Water with tepid water when the soil is just starting to dry out on the surface, but don't let it dry out completely. During the winter you can reduce the watering. Mist the leaves in the summer months, and feed with a liquid fertiliser during the growing season.

These plants do tend to shed their leaves if they are either under- or over-watered, but I'm afraid I am not able to determine which one it could be from your description. The best course of action then is to only water the plant when the top inch or two of the compost has become quite dry - and never leave the plant sitting in water for any length of time.
