LIGHT: A. gracilior will tolerate light as low as 100 footcandles, but prefers bright, filtered light in the 250-500 footcandle range.
TEMPERATURE: This plant will grow satisfactorily in temperatures between 65° and 75°F but will be just as happy in temperatures as low as 50°F. Growth will be slowed at temperatures below that.
