Thrives in humus-rich, well-drained soil with warm, humid shade or dappled shade. Apply mulch to keep the root zone cool and conserve moisture. Water regularly during first few growing seasons to establish root system; once established, tolerates periodic dry spells but prefers evenly moist soils. Feed lightly, periodically throughout the year.
