Newly bought Pachira
I just bought my Pachira and to be honest, it seems this is the first time ever I'm going to grow a plant. The feeling is thrilling, indeed.
What makes me wonder a lot is the issue with the watering, the spraying and the soil. I went in a garden market today and an assistant put the Pachira in a not-so-large ceramic pot with ( i suppose ) good drenage and dark ( almost black ) soil. I do not know what this soil consists of but the woman told me not to change it for some time and to not add anything to it.
The second thing : the Pachira will grow in a mostly-shaded place in my living room, absolutely no direct sunlight and i could say it's more dark than bright there. The woman in the market told me the Pachira did not like much water and indeed, when she sold it to me, the soil looked quite dry. It's autumn here and the temp. outside does not exceed 15-16 degrees during the day and 10-12 at night. Should I water my Pachira every 15 days as the woman told me? Should I spray it and how regularly am I to do it? Should I cut off the obviously tired and a little yellowish leaves? Thank you so much in advance and please excuse my bad English - i come from a small country in Europe-Bulgaria.
