The foliage of these houseplants is quite large, and it is variously patterned in shades of green and cream. This is accompanied by a burgundy flush, which is pronounced when the leaves are newly emerging, but slowly fades as they mature. The overall effect is very colourful, so it works well either as an accent plant, or as part of a mixed indoor arrangement when teamed with plants that have a solid green colouring.

We’re proud to support our British growers, and having been raised by one of our trusted UK nurseries, this indoor plant has a low carbon footprint, which makes it perfect for an eco-friendly collection or gift.

Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery alternative), but we have a wide and wonderful range on our website to choose from.


  • Home care:
    These are easy plants to care for as long as you are careful with the watering. Only water once the compost is dry to the touch, and make sure that the plant isn't left standing in water. You can mist the leaves during the summer to increase the humidity. Occasionally wash the leaves with a damp sponge or cloth to keep the foliage glossy. Try to maintain an average temperature no lower than 12°C in the winter, and avoid any sudden drops in the temperature and cold draughts.
