Pot stands at 18cm tall, and is 20cm wide.
Overall height with the plant is roughly 55cm tall.
Loves bright filtered light positions, and can tolerate some medium light. Will not do well in low light.
The brighter the better for it to produce flowers through spring and summer.
Water when the soil has just dried - typically every 1 - 2 weeks through warmer months, but only roughly every 2 - 4 weeks through the cooler months. Be careful not to over water. Allow soil to slightly dry between watering.
When re-potting, be sure to use free draining soil, or add some perlite to your soil mix.
