Watering is a significant consideration when it comes to the health of the specimen. It can’t be neglected. When the top of the soil feels a bit dry, water the plant. If the surface of the soil is damp, that means the species has absorbed sufficient amount of water.

The tree should get plenty of direct sunlight that is why it would be better to either place it outside (in a garden, on a patio, terrace, or balcony) or keep it indoors by the window.

The soil should drain fast enough but at the same time it must be able to retain water. There also should be small particles in the soil to provide proper aeration.

Adding fertilizer is a must. It should be done during growth season which is the beginning of spring trough the middle of the fall.
