Once established, this attractive, fine-leaved bushy plant is relatively easy to look after. Any difficulties you experience in keeping it can usually be attributed to changing conditions or the lack of a particular nutrient. A readily available source of Iron and fairly soft water (with a pH of 6-7) are particularly important. In good conditions and strong lighting, the plant will grow rapidly, producing noticeable growth almost daily. Stronger light will also ensure that the leaves are thicker and more compact. Do not take cuttings too often, as the original stem plant may begin to die back. Once cut back, the plant produces side shoots. Positioned in groups of individual stems placed slightly apart, giant ambulia makes an ideal background plant.
