stronger hot tropical sun, in this case plant it where it will get morning sun and shade in the afternoon.
Putting mulch around the plant will help suppress weeds and keep the soil moist.
Keep the soil moist but don’t water the leaves, this will cause them to burn and turn brown but worse fungal diseases which it is prone to.
Fertilize once a month any type works great with this easy going plant.
