Watering instructions
Only average levels of watering is required here. When you do water make sure you aim to get all of the compost evenly moist, then wait until it has dried out some before watering again (don't wait too long though). You'll also need to wait less time between watering's during the warmer months of the year or if the plant has been positioned in a very warm and dry space because all of these things will increase the thirst of your Swiss Cheese Plant.

Room temperature
Active growth will start whenever temperatures are 18?C / 65?F or above. Although it will survive easily between 10?C / 50?F to 30?C / 86?F try to keep in the middle of this where possible to avoid temperature related problems.
Room position
Gentle sunlight is fine for the Swiss Cheese Plant, but harsh sun needs to be avoided as it will scorch and possibly yellow the leaves. On the other side of things, dark gloomy corners need to be avoided too in order to prevent loss of the Swiss Cheese effect in the leaves and the annoying spreading effect that occurs in these conditions.
