    The leaves of this showy plant are a deep purple-flushed green on the top with a maroon reverse. This gives them a really nice bi-coloured effect, so even when not in flower, the plant will hold its own in the room. Having said that though, it is the flowers that are the real stars. They top long stems and are a bright orange colour that really glows - and each one can last up to 3 months.

  • Home care: Originating from tropical regions, they like relatively stable temperatures (ideally above 15C) and a well-lit position that does not get direct sunlight (think steamy jungle!). They like to be kept well watered, although this can be cut back a little in winter, and they thrive in high humidity, either grow it in a steamy room, mist it with water regularly, and/or sit the pot on a tray of dampened shingle.
