Repot every 2-3 years, but like the rubber plant, keep a little on the pot-bound side. The shoot tips can be pinched back to promote branching. Keep in half shade or moderately bright light. If growing outdoors, keep in the shade. The tree is somewhat drought tolerant once established, but does thrives in well-drained soil and moderate moisture.
