The ‘Hobella’ needs much light, especially when used as an indoor plant. For the flowers to change colour, the plant needs much energy and therefore lots of light. Hot, direct sun makes the flowers wilt and even burn!
Indoors: The most suitable position is in a window with bright light, but not
in direct sun. Ideal temperature is 15-20° C, away from draughts.
