light and favorite place
the mother in law's tongue likes a lot of light, even some direct sunlight won't harm her. she is also happy in partial shade or darker corners of your room.
water and fertilizer
spring - summer: every 14 days, check if the upper part of the earth (approx. 1-2cm) is dry. if this is the case, you can water your plant (approx. 1/4 of the pot volume). rule of thumb: the mother in law's tongue prefers earth that is dry rather than too wet.
autumn - winter: the mother in law's tongue doesn't need too much water during these months. it is enough if you check on her once a month.
fertilizer: around spring and summer (march until september) you should add some fertilizer to your water every 1-2 months. you can use liquid fertilizer or stick 1-2 fertilizer pellets into the ground (if you do this then it is enough once during spring-summer). in winter the plant does not need any fertilizer.
you can move your mother in law's tongue to a bigger pot if you start seeing roots. she will also love it if you wipe her with a soft towel to free her from dust.
