    The large, leathery leaves of this lush-looking house plant, clothe the upright, branching stems throughout the year. A tough and undemanding plant (provided it is not over-watered), it tolerates lower light levels than many of the others, so it's ideal for north-facing rooms. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic 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: These are easy plants to care for as long as you are careful with the watering. Only water once the compost is dry to touch, and make sure that the plant isn't left standing in water. You can mist the leaves during the summer to increase the humidity. Occasionally wash the leaves with a damp sponge or cloth to keep the foliage glossy. Try to maintain an average temperature no lower than 15°C in the winter, and avoid any sudden drops in the temperature and cold draughts.
