More compact and refined than the species, this is an elegant and easy to care for house plant that tolerates neglect better than most. Its a pretty thing too, as each lustrous leaf is made up of several segments, which span out from the tip of the stalk. 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.
- Home care: Place in bright but indirect light and keep well watered during the growing season - making sure that the excess water can drain away freely. Water less often in winter and maintain temperatures above 12C. Mist the leaves regularly with water to improve the humidity around the plant, or sit the pot in a tray of moist shingle.
