    Originating from the Nile river valley in Egypt, this intriguing and architctural plant was once used to make paper, but it can also be used as a stylish house plant. In time the upright stems form a dense clump, and each one is topped with a starburst-like spray of smaller leaflets. It loves reliably moist soils, so it's a great option if you tend to overwater your plants!

    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.
