Hardiness level Red
Not only is this a lovely plant for indoors, killing it is major accomplishment. They only reach about 5ft tall in their native KwaZulu Natal. Little white flowers occasionally.
A position in good light indoors though full sun might cause some leaf scorch. Allow to dry out between watering, and they will enjoy an occasional feed in the summer.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
