  • Current height: approximately 50cm (including pot)
  • Pot cover: Includes a cast aluminium pot cover with verdigris patina

    One of the most beautiful and colourful foliage houseplants, this close relative of the calathea, has relatively large leaves that unfurl to reveal distinctive patterns on the top, and a red-flushed reverse. They will add an exotic touch to bright misty bathrooms or kitchens.
    Sculptural pot cover is made from rough cast aluminium with a verdigris brass patina to mimic natural weathering. Heavyweight and sturdy, this pot isexcellent for housing taller plants that may be liable to tip in lighter pots.

  • 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.
