Plant care

The Canistropsis billbergioides cv citron likes a place in the shade; it does not grow well if its surroundings are too sunny. Direct sunlight should be avoided. This exotic plant is not proof against temperatures below 2°Celsius [35.6°F], but for the rest it does well at all normal temperatures in the home or on a terrace or balcony. The soil can be really moist, but stagnant water near the roots should be avoided. It is best if the soil of the Canistropsis billbergioides cv citron is properly permeable and consists partly of peat. Araflora also has other colour variants of this species for sale.
