But during summer, must keep it in shady area with diffused sunlight.
Soil: Proper drainage in pot is necessary to avoid root rot. We should give water, whenever potting medium loses moisture. We should prepare the potting mix in such way so that water should reach bottom of pot within 15-25 seconds. This is the basic quality of fast draining soil. Such soil also contributes to make the potting mix more aerated. To make the ideal potting mix for this plant, 20 % drainage media (river sand/ Leca/ Perlite/ Pumice or rice husk- use any one of them) in potting mix should be available. In rest of the potting mix, we should mix vermi-compost (25 %), coco peat (25 %) and garden soil (30%).
