    The large leaves, which become more arrow-like as the plant matures, are a soft grey-green colour, which almost gives them a metallic sheen. They form on a stout stem, which has a naturally climbing tendency, so it will need supporting (a moss pole would be ideal) as the plant grows. An easy to grow house plant, it gets quite large as it matures, so in time it will create real impact - as well as add a lush, tropical feel to the home.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Water freely when in growth, but keep drier 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.
  • Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant
