  • The bear paw stores water in its thick leaves for possible periods of drought. They can last a long time without water. Generally, water when the soil has completely dried out.
  • Bear paws like lots of light. Indoors give your bear paw plant as much light as possible. The best spot is a bright south-facing window where it gets about six hours of indirect sunlight every day. If it gets a lot of bright sun light, the tips of the leaves turn a deep red color.
