@gjones, it seems to have developed some spidermites, which I am a little surprised about in this plant. However, it is sitting at my workspace and it is not agreeing with our dry, winter air.

I'm finding several of my houseplants aren't loving the dry winter air. It seems regular spritzing is helping a bit and I've also set up my cool air humidifier. Can't wait for spring already!😊

@kaigia. How are you?? It looks like a beauty but like @gjones said misty them will help and I use a gas furnace in winter here in Texas not a lot but often for a couple months. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to get a humidifier but I take a large pot not huge and fill it with water let it sort of medium boil. This puts humidity into the air and if ur crazy like me sometimes when I’m showering I’ll bring some plants in the bthrm for humidity. I’m sure they’ll do well they look real pretty

@terrimclaughlin @gjones Thanks for the advice! I have it in my classroom, where the air is very dry. I have plans to get a humidifier. I have brought my plants at home into the shower sometimes and my children laugh at me as well! 😄
