Care of desire

: Location: It is considered an indoor plant, but in our country it is also maintained outdoors, as long as places with direct exposure to the sun and cold winds are avoided.

➢ Watering: Excessive moisture can cause the leaves to turn yellow and fall off. Before each watering, first check the soil moisture and if it is dry then water. Avoid leaving water on the pot plate.

➢ Lubrication: Need fertilizer suitable for leafy plants once a month throughout the year.

➢ Multiplication: Propagated by cuttings, dipping part of the stem into the soil. Also by cutting a shoot and immersing it in water, it can take root and thus have a new desire.
