I just water it once a week or when the compost is dry as i do with all the plants with the exception of the catus plants i have, one of which is about a foot and half tall now.

BUT why is my unberella loosing its leaves?

 Please can someone tell me what the plant is and what i am doing wrong as it has started to lose leaves. It gets watered when the soil is dry to touch and is about a metre away from the radiator i have also turned it round so the plant does not grow towards the window as it has been doing.

I do have someone come in and let the dog out and i think she may have been watering the plants without me knowing but not sure.

Help please and thanks.

How often do i water catus plants?

Fold the leaves over to protect the centre, and,  if it gets very cold, a layer of fleece might help.  They do get very sad looking in the winter, but unless it is very young it should survive - new shoots will probably arise next year.  I'd love to have one but no space for such a wonderful specimen - good luck. 

The stems of the leaves are very stiff so how do i bend the leaves over the centre?
