Selloum 8”


  • Indoors: Bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions but may grow slower and have smaller leaves.
  • Outdoors: Partial shade. Protect from direct, intense sunlight which can scorch the leaves.


  • Optimal Range: 65-80°F (18-27°C).
  • Avoid: Temperatures below 50°F (10°C) and sudden temperature fluctuations.


  • Preferred: Moderate to high humidity.
  • Tips: Use a humidity tray, mist the leaves regularly, or use a humidifier to maintain optimal humidity levels, especially in dry indoor environments.


  • Frequency: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings.
  • Method: Water thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain out of the pot. Reduce watering in the winter months.
  • Tips: Avoid overwatering and ensure the plant is not sitting in water to prevent root rot.


  • Type: Well-draining potting mix.
  • Preferred: A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and a little compost or sand works well.


  • Frequency: Every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).
  • Type: Balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength.


  • Purpose: To maintain shape and remove any dead or yellowing leaves.
  • Method: Trim back any dead or damaged leaves at the base with clean, sharp scissors. Prune to control size and shape as needed.


  • Frequency: Every 1-2 years or when the plant becomes root-bound.
  • Pot Size: Increase pot size by 2-4 inches in diameter.
  • Tips: Repot in the spring for best results.


  • Method: Stem cuttings or air layering.
  • Steps: For stem cuttings, take 4-6 inch cuttings from healthy stems, remove the lower leaves, dip the cut end in rooting hormone, and place in a well-draining potting mix. Keep the soil moist until roots develop. For air layering, create a small wound on a healthy stem, wrap it with moist sphagnum moss, and cover with plastic wrap until roots develop, then cut and plant.
