This is quite the understated bride, a simply-styled cloak reveals the most beautiful coloured fabric underneath…mid green leaves with flashes of pale pink arranged alternately along the stem, and dusky magenta-pink striped undersides. Don’t be bashful about this little beauty, place this gorgeous trailing plant high on a shelf, preferably ‘up-lit’ to show this unusual houseplant off in all its finery.
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: Make sure that it is in a bright spot but not in direct sun, with a constant average temperature no lower than 10°C in the winter. Watering is simple - water well in the growing season from spring to autumn, then reduce watering in the winter when the plant's growth has slowed down. You can mist the leaves occasionally in a hot summer.
