A liquid feed given regularly throughout the growing season will greatly benefit the plant and help to promote new growth.

Remove old tired foliage when necessary. Do be careful of the sharp barbs along the leaf stems!

A very cold tolerant plant that will withstand temperatures as low as -12C without damage. Keep the roots as dry as possible in the winter.
