Watering: Water when the surface of the soil is visibly dry. These are not drought tolerant plants, so be sure to water more often in the summer months - especially if planted in containers.
Soil: Well drained soil, but is not picky about soil quality. No need to build up high organic matter with compost or fertilize regularly.
