Temperature/Humidity: Loves warm & humid climates. Temperature at least 60 degrees & humidity above 50%.
Pet Friendly: There are no reports of a definite answer on the pet-toxicity of this plant. However, all parts of this plant (unripe fruit, leaves, core, etc.) may cause digestive problems and allergic reactions in pets when ingested.
Edible: Yes. The fruit produced from this plant is edible.
Soil: Use a sandy loam soil that is slightly acidic. Cactus soil mixed with Peat & Perlite works well. A balanced fertilizer that contains Nitrogen, Phosphoric Acid, Potassium, and Magnesium may be used.
Lighting: Full-Sun (indirect while the plant is small). Partial sun if your location has extreme hot temperatures during the summer.
