Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Young plants should be kept indoors in a temperature between 18-24c. They need plenty of bright, but indirect, light. They need at least four to five hours of this kind of light a day. If the windows in your house are unable to provide suitable light, then you may want to use an artificial plant light to add additional light.
