Grow in a light spot out of direct sunlight to prevent the leaves scorching. It needs a warm, humid environment to thrive, so choose a warm spot and mist the foliage regularly with an atomiser. Feed with a liquid fertiliser every 2-3 weeks to keep plants healthy.

I seem to have no problem propagating these very speedily from seed. The problems arise when they are about 1 cm. tall. They then seem to rot, and do die off. What am I doing wrong? Anyone? Thank you. carty.p@sky.com
