Also known as Pleomele, this plant is relatively easy to care for. It needs bright, indirect light at least four hours a day. Intense, direct sun will burn the leaves and low light will cause the plant's yellow-lime striped leaves to fade.
Keep your plant’s soil moist but not soaked spring through fall. You should keep it less watered in the winter. Never overwater this plant. This genus is sensitive to fluoride in tap water. Using bottled, or purified water to water your plants is a good practise. A symptom of fluoride damage is yellow wilting on the leaf margins.
The Song of India should be fed bi-weekly in the spring and summer with a 10-10-10 water-soluble fertilizer diluted by half.
