    This generously proportioned house (or office) plant is ready to unpack - and dazzle! A low maintenance plant, its large leathery leaves put on an impressive display, and in time it will grow to form a large specimen. 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 to increase the humidity - and occasionally wash the leaves with a damp sponge or cloth to keep them glossy. Try to maintain an average temperature no lower than 12°C in the winter, and avoid any sudden drops in the temperature and cold draughts.
