    The stem of this tree-like plant has been plaited, which gives it a decorative feel, and this is topped with a crown of large, rich green leaves. The tough, white plastic pot cover it comes with is the perfect fit for it, so it can be slipped straight in before being placed on display.

  • Home care: As the name suggests, this plant loves a drink, so do make sure you keep it well watered - particularly during the warmer months. It is important however that the excess water can drain away freely so it is never left sitting in water. In winter it can be watered less often. less. Maintain temperatures above 10°C and mist with water regularly to increase the humidity around the plant - or site the pot on a tray filled with wet shingle. Pot it up every couple of years, but avoid repotting into a much larger pot.
