Bright indirect light mixed with direct exposure is ideal.
Every 2-3 weeks. Allow soil to dry out completely.
Loves pets. Unless your pet is an elephant.
A spritz here and there won't hurt.
That two week safari in South Africa is looking good.
Pro-tip: Portia goes dormant in colder months, so you can slow watering down to once a month.
Medium: Around 20 inches tall with a container width of 6.5 inches.
Sizes will vary.
