    This is a fast growing climber, which comes attached to a moss pole. It has lustrous heart-shaped leaves that get bigger and bigger (up to 30cm long) as the plant matures. Easy to grow, it will tolerate some shade and looks good throughout the year.

  • Home care: Water freely when in growth, but keep dryer in winter. Mist the leaves regularly with water to increase humidity and every so often put it under a cold shower to wash off the leaves. Make sure the winter temperatures stay above 10°C, and repot every couple of years.
