Plant Diameter: Size Varies
Light: Low to medium light
Water: Every 5 days - when the roots turn from green to silver. Water them by "flooding" them with distilled water for a few seconds. Ensure all roots turn bright green. Then, allow the plant to completely drain for 10-15 mintues.
Trimming: After it has flowered the first time, cut the stem just above the node where the first flower bloomed. From the top node, a new flower stem should emerge within 2 months. If there is no response or the flower spike turns brown, cut it off near the base of the plant where it emerged.
