When compared to other plants in this series snow white is a good plant and can take little bit of abuse from over watering, At the same time consent exposure to moist soil may lead to root rot a major problem with the house plants. I would suggest that you should see that the top layer that is the top 3 cm of the soil should be totally dry when you water the plant. See to that the plant is watered thoroughly when watered.

This plant needs indirect sunlight and can grow good in indoors as well where there is adequate natural lighting. If exposed to mild morning or evening sun there is no farm but the plant cannot tolerate mid noon sun which is very hot.


Fertilizing:

Fertilizing the plant with a liquid fertilizer once in 15-20 days will keep the plant fresh and healthy occasionally treating the plant with Epsom salt is also welcome


Pest:

This plant is susceptible to all the pests that attack house plants like White flies, Mealy bugs, Aphids etc. So while watering check out for the creepy stuff and if present attend them immediately.
