The fleshy, palm-like foliage of this variety emerges green, but it quickly develops a deep chocolate colouring. This makes it quite a dramatic and unusual specimen, that will become a real feature on a side or console table.
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: Avoid overwatering by allowing the top of the compost to get dry before watering again. Water less in winter. Mist the leaves with water regularly and maintain temperatures above 15°C. Repot every few years in spring.
- Humans/Pets: Harmful if eaten; skin/eye irritant
