Position - full sun to partial shade in covered areas to control watering. Suitable for gardens in well- drained exposed positions in moderate climates.

Watering - should be watered well but should dry out soon after watering; Plants will survive without water for long periods and require periods of dryness over winter months to encourage flowering.

Feeding - 25% of recommended dosage monthly in growing period. The less fertiliser, the better the shape of the plant. Fertilisers high in nitrogen can produce larger plants with less colour.

Repotting - can be left to overgrow their pots or repotted in the warmer months in a well-drained potting mix.
