To see me at my best
Keep me out of direct sunshine and keep the humidity high; I'm from the jungles of Bolivia so do your best to recreate a tropical paradise for me.

The table gives a guide to the size of this plant and how it will fit into your space. 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.
