Care Guide:

  1. Light & Location: Place in a spot with bright, indirect sunlight. If outdoors, provide partial shade to avoid direct sun exposure which can scorch the leaves.
  2. Watering: Let the soil dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, especially in colder months. Water less frequently in winter.
  3. Soil & Transplanting: Use a well-draining soil mix; a blend of potting soil, sand, and perlite is ideal. Repot every two to three years to refresh the soil and accommodate growth.
  4. Temperature & Humidity: Keep at a comfortable room temperature, avoiding cold drafts and extreme heat. Average home humidity levels are generally fine.
  5. Fertilizing: Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly during the growing season (spring to summer).
  6. Pruning & Maintenance: Prune to shape and encourage bushier growth if desired. Remove any dead or damaged parts with clean shears.
  7. Propagation: Easily propagated by stem cuttings in spring or early summer. Allow the cuttings to callous before planting in moist soil.
  8. Pests & Diseases: Watch out for common pests like mealybugs and spider mites. Regular inspections and prompt treatment can prevent infestations.

Remember, each plant is unique and may require slight adjustments to care. Observing your plant's response to its environment and adjusting care as needed will help it thrive.

For those looking to add a Red Devil plant to their collection, it's a striking choice that adds a pop of color and interest to any NZ home or garden. Plus, its easy care makes it suitable for gardeners of all levels.
