Pest Control: Keep an eye peeled for bugs (mainly mealy bug and scale); if necessary, wash with an organic insecticidal soap or neem oil.
Ongoing Care: Repot in spring into a container 2 inches wider, using the same soil mix. Rotate so all sides get direct sun. Take outside when nights warm up, setting them first in a sheltered spot, where they can acclimate to sunlight. In fall before moving back inside, check for pests and spray leaves with a hose.
