Water it moderately during the summer months and reduce the frequency during winter. What out for overwatering!
Because it does not develop an extensive root system, it does not need to be lots of fertilizer.
Fed during the spring and summer months with a diluted liquid fertilizer. Do NOT fertilize at all during winter.
