They are ideal indoor plants, as they do not like full sun exposure.
Therefore, they can be placed in half shade, thus avoiding intense and prolonged light and heat so as not to cause burns and dehydration.
In the warmer months (April to September), water every 10-15 days.
In winter, completely suspend watering, but check that the soil does not become a single block that is too dry and compact.
The optimal cultivation temperature varies between 20 and 28 ° C.
It is quite resistant even to the cold; in winter, it can also withstand temperatures of a few degrees below zero, albeit for short periods.
The flowers are very small but graceful; their colour can vary from white to deep pink.
Originally from Mexico, it was discovered for the first time only in 1968 by the botanist and collector Robert Alan Foster.
