    Leathery strap-shaped leaves that are irregularly striped with maroon-green form a funnel-shaped rosette, from which a luminous orange-red, spear-like raceme is jettisoned. The appearance of the flower usually signals the end of the individual rosette, however if you keep it in good conditions, you should soon find new shoots starting to appear from the base to take its place.

    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: These plants like a constant warm temperature (minimum of 15°C/59°F). As they feed through the leaves, mist the leaves regularly throughout the summer. Most importantly don't overwater, let the soil dry out between watering.
