How to take care of the jiboia

The jiboia is a very easy to care plant, ideal for those who do not have much time available for gardening.

Avoid placing the plant in places that receive direct sunlight, the jiboia prefers to live in half shade, only with natural light. The best place for it is close to windows and doors.

Do not water the jiboia every day. The plant does not support soggy soils, although it likes humidity. It is recommended to irrigate three times a week or when you notice dry soil. In winter, the space between waterings should be larger, as the plant enters a kind of hibernation, consuming less water and nutrients.

Pruning is important to keep the jiboia always beautiful. Cut off excess leaves, especially those that are yellowish and dry. With pruning you also control the growth of the plant, leaving it to the size you want.

The jiboia is toxic, so keep it in a safe place away from children and pets.
