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.

How to look after me

  • Light


    I prefer bright indirect light, however, I can also cope in light shade.

  • Water


    Water me moderately in summer, allowing the top half of my soil to dry out in-between waterings; water me just sparingly in winter.

  • Food


    Feed me once a month in spring and summer.

  • Climate


    I am pretty bulletproof and can deal with dry air and draughts.

  • Other Maintentance


    I can be top-heavy so make sure to put me in a heavy pot!

Things to look out for

  • Look Out

    Leaves falling sidewards

    You may have over/under-watered, or your plant isn't getting enough light
  • Look Out

    Wrinkled leaves

    Most likely your plant is under-watered - water moderately for a few days and they should perk-up
  • Look Out

    Yellowing leaves

    Usually caused by overwatering, check for root rot

Health impacts

  • Toxic


    All parts are toxic - keep away from pets and children.
  • Air Purifying


    A superstar at cleaning the air, I remove toxins during the day and release oxygen at night, so perfect for a bedroom
