Temp
The Scarlet Star prefers an average temperature of 18-27°C. When kept in this temperature, the plant will continue to grow all year long.
Light  This plant prefers bright, yet indirect, sunlight at all times. Too much sunlight will cause the leaves to sunburn and damage the flower.
Watering  The roots should be misted on a daily basis. The soil must be watered to the point of wet, but never soggy. Once it has been watered, allow the soil to dry completely before watering again. Do not allow water to sit in the saucer underneath this plant.
Soil the plant requires a mixture of one part soil to one part pumice or bark to thrive. Drainage must be good at all stages of the plant's life.
Max Height  Height 18 in/45 cm.
Re-potting  Every spring, this plant should be re-potted to a container that is one size larger. This should continue until the plant resides in a 6 or 8 inch pot. Larger pots will reduce the bloom longevity. Once the plant has matured there is no need for re-potting again. They need to be secure in a pot because they are top heavy types and can topple over, easily.
