    As the name implies, this is a truly magnificent plant. The big, lustrous leaves, which are heavily veined, are wonderful, but it's for the impressive clusters of flowers that this plant is so highly sought after. These appear on pendent stems, that cascade over the edges of the pot, and although quite small themselves, they are surrounded by large, showy bracts. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic 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.

  • Garden care: Keep well watered during the growing season, making sure the excess water drains away freely, but cut back a little during the winter. These plants prefer a humid environment, so avoid placing near a radiator and mist the foliage with water regularly. Feed with a good general purpose house plant fertiliser from spring to late summer and maintain temperatures above 15C in winter.
