They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day, like somewhere shady outside or inside behind a window.
They like bright indirect light, but can also tolerate medium light condition. A good bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool right next to a window.
They need to be watered when the first 1 - 2 inches of soil is dry. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you do the watering. Make sure don't let the soil dry out completely.
They can live in any average home humidity condition. Excess humidity combined with heavy soils can cause fungal diseases.
Container grown tea plants should be planted in a pot with plenty of drainage holes. Pay close attention to tea plants grown in containers, and never allow the soil to become completely dry. Fertilize tea plants every two months when they are actively growing in spring and summer.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
