Bright indirect sunlight will keep your Red Bristle happy. He will not do well in bright afternoon soon so be mindful of that when you’re figuring out his home.
Wait until the top 3cm of soil are dry before giving him a good drink. Water less frequently during the winter months.
Being a South American rainforest native this guy likes it moist. Get yourself a mister and go wild, don’t mist his leaves directly just the air around him. He also wouldn’t mind hanging out in your bathroom or kitchen.
He’s a jungle baby so this means your Red Bristle will like it warm. Somewhere between 16 – 24 degrees and he’ll be ship shape.
Your Red Bristle needs no extra food, you can feed him sparingly with very watered down fertiliser if you wish but he shouldn’t need it.
This bristly chap is toxic if ingested so keep away from any nibblers.
