    As the name implies, this is a truly magnificent plant. The big, lustrous leaves, which are heavily veined, are wonderful, but it's for the impressive clusters of flowers that this plant is so highly sought after. These appear on pendent stems, that cascade over the edges of the pot, and although quite small themselves, they are surrounded by large, showy bracts. 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.

  • Garden care: Keep well watered during the growing season, making sure the excess water drains away freely, but cut back a little during the winter. These plants prefer a humid environment, so avoid placing near a radiator and mist the foliage with water regularly. Feed with a good general purpose house plant fertiliser from spring to late summer and maintain temperatures above 15C in winter.

Best house plant ever

5

These huge flamenco flowers are stunning and everyone who visits can't help but mention them. In the first year I had 6 enormous flowers l then wintered in Spain and left the plant with my daughter-in-law who was a bit afraid of looking after it. When I returned after 3 months I re-potted it and then fed it with House Plant Feed. It immediately put up 2 buds which are rapidly growing and I am hoping for more flowers this year. I have just bought it a very expensive hand hammered gold/copper pot. But a plant this beautiful should be displayed in a wonderful pot. I love it and worth every penny. Only wish I could download some pictures when it was in full flower.

I am confused as to what you mean by pot cover? Pot covers: choose a 18cm pot cover to give a good fit over the pot. I want to buy this plant, so want to know if I should buy a pot and a pot cover? thanks Dianne

Hi there Dianne. The plant will be sent out in a black plastic pot, so you only need to buy an 18cm pot cover to pop the pot into. You can find them on our site here: https://www.crocus.co.uk/products/_/the-tool-shed/pots/indoor-pots/plcid.767/plcid.790/plcid.1248/numitems.100/canorder.1/

Which house plants you choose should depend on the environment you intend to keep them in, the space available, how much time you can spend preening them as well as your personal preference. For me, foliage house plants are the ticket, because they provid
