TEMPERATURE: Teddy Bear's like to be kept between 65 and 75 degrees with a minimum temperature of 50 degrees. They also like to have a well ventilated area.

WATER: Water when dry to the touch. Keep soil evenly moist but NOT WET. Reduce water during the winter months.

LIGHT: They like to be kept in a bright area. Wandering Jew will tolerate some direct sun, but be careful of the hot afternoon sun.
