Choose an indoor spot that is not in direct sunlight - the plant does best in partial or filtered sun. The Zanzibar Gem™ will survive in the dark but it won't continue to grow.
Allow the plant to dry out well between watering. Watering once a month is plenty.
Water less frequently in winter.
Don't use leaf shiners, as the leaves are naturally shiny and do not like a lot of chemicals. If necessary, wipe them with a damp cloth.
Make sure that the pot and soil you use have good drainage.
Add a slow release fertilizer to the pot during spring for the best results.
