Apoballis Lavallei does well in bright, indirect light avoiding direct sunlight. An east or south-facing window would be best. Wipe down the leaves monthly to keep them shiny and clean.
This plant needs course, a well-draining rich organic mix. Water when the top inch of soil is dry. Yellowing leaves indicate too much water while brown crispy tips on the leaves indicates too little.
High humidity is required for the best results. You can set the pot in a tray filled with pebbles and water but ensure that the pot is not sitting in the water. You can also use a humidifier.
Fertilize monthly during the spring and summer with balanced, diluted fertilizer. Do not over fertilize.
