With a mass of hanging, pointed, dark, glossy leaves, I will make a stunning focal point in your home.
The Stem Pledge
To see me at my best
Put me somewhere where I can catch the less intense morning sunshine, and water me when the top of my soil dries out.
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
I like bright light, but avoid direct Summer afternoon sunshine as it can burn my leaves.
From Spring to Autumn water when the top 2-3cm of soil is dry. Water me sparingly in winter.
Feed me once a month in spring and summer.
I like being in a warm room, and positioned away from heat sources and draughts. Mist me regularly.
When I am young, repot me into a larger pot every Spring. I don't like being moved, once you have found my perfect place with my needs met, leave me to flourish there!
Things to look out for
Sudden leaf lossThis may be due to me being moved, so I am stressed! This may also be caused by under or over watering, or not being in my perfect temperature.
Dark spots on leavesSunburn! Or leaf spot, in which case treat me with a fungicide.
Brown leaf tipsThis will be caused by low humidity, inadequate or erratic watering.
ToxicityToxic if ingested - keep away from pets and children.
Air-purificationI'm very effective at removing toxins such as formaldehyde, benzene and trichloroethylene from the air.
