Hello UBC My son just purchased a Monkey Tree from the grocery store where he's employed. Everyone is thrilled with this new aquisition for our living room forest. However, we have no experience with this plant. We have a few questions on how to care for this plant but first I'll describe our plant. It's planted in a round 6"x6" pot. There are 2 plants approximately 8" & 10" tall. The soil is a basic mix of peat, topsoil, and drainage pebbles. The soil is quite wet to the touch. The room is facing west with both direct and diffused sunlight. The house is climatically controlled by forced air gas & central A/C. We live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Questions 1) What is the moisture requirement and how often? 2) What type of light is best for growth? 3) How often does it need to be replanted? 4) How often does it need fertilizer? 5) What tempurature range is best? 6) What soil mixture is typical for development? 7) Are there any dangers for people/animals living the the same enviroment? 8) What would be considered normal development? 9) Besides obvious poor health, how do we identify problems specific to a Monkey Tree. This will be tremendous help to start and we wait your response. Thank you.
