During the growth period of black claw, the soil should be kept moist to avoid water accumulation. The black claw can withstand the room temperature of about - 4 ℃, and then the top growth point of the leaf will be frostbitten, dry and die. The whole winter will be basically dry, and the water will be slowly cut off below 5 ℃.

In summer, the whole plant grows slowly or stops completely in high temperature. At this time, it should be well ventilated and properly shaded to avoid exposure to the sun, moderate watering and long-term rain, so as to prevent the plant from rotting.

The propagation of black claw is generally to cut off the head and explode the young or cut the leaves. The cut plants can be directly cut in the dry granular soil. After a few days, a small amount of water will be supplied, which is easy to root. The cutting of leaves is a little slow. Take down the full leaves, put them in the shade to dry the wounds, and then put them on the soil. The soil should not be too wet, just a little humidity. It will slowly sprout and grow new plants 。
