However, it's essential to avoid placing it in areas with low light or minimal natural sunlight to ensure its vitality and overall health.

Care Tips:

Besides regular watering, occasional pruning helps maintain its shape and encourages new growth. Rotate the pot periodically for even exposure to light, ensuring balanced growth. Regularly wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust and promote healthy foliage.
