It is also ideal to keep in your bedroom.
It releases oxygen and absorbs carbon dioxide at night.
It can be grown from seeds in pots filled with a moist peat/sand compost. The container should then be placed in a propagator or warm spot, temperature between 20-25C. Ensure you do not exclude light as it encourages germination. Always keep the surface of the compost moist but do not let it become waterlogged. In a period of between 1 and 4 months, the seeds will germinate.
Once the plants are large enough to handle, you should transplant them into larger containers, then increase the pot sizes as they grow larger.
Ensure that they are kept in a cool, light and ventilated situation.
This is a long-lasting plant that will benefit from a spell outdoors in a sunny, protected spot during the summer months.
I have my own, which was given to me as a gift, it is fully grown now and I am looking forward to seeing it flower in the summer. The flowers are candle like and reddish orange in colour.
In conclusion, it is my humble opinion that we should all keep at least one of these plants as it is somewhat like having a mini health-food shop / pharmacy at home.
