My "medallion-like" leaves appear to be painted with brushstrokes of deep green and fuchsia tones. Watch my leaves furl up each evening and unfurl each morning.
The Stem Pledge
To see me at my best
Keep me somewhere bright but out of direct sunshine and keep the humidity high - like the jungle!
Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.
How to look after me
Keep me somewhere in bright light but out of direct sun.
Keep my soil moist but not wet at all times; make sure to water me less frequently in winter.
Feed me once a month in spring and summer.
Mist me regularly to help me pretend I'm still in the jungle!
If I look sad try giving me tepid and distilled, filtered or rain-water.
Things to look out for
Curling leavesLikely underwatered, water thoroughly and drain before putting back in decorative pot.
Brown edgesPotentially needs more water, or humidity is too low - check soil is moist and mist.
Pale / wilting leavesLikely overwatering, allow soil to dry out before watering again.
Child and pet friendlyNon-toxic.
