Remove your houseplant from its packaging immediately and place in a bright window out of direct sunlight. After several days, sun-loving plants may be placed in direct sunlight.
Don't be surprised if some houseplants lose their leaves due to shipping stress - they are not dying. If new leaves have not sprouted in four weeks, or if the stem turns brown throughout, your plant is in need of replacement.
Keep your plant in its original pot until it has had time to recover from shipping stress and produce two new leaves. Watch watering needs closely while your plant is in a small pot. When repotting, place into a 4 inch pot and water thoroughly. Avoid moving your plant into a very large pot until it is ready, or root rot will likely result from overwatering.Houseplants Chart
