The arrow-shaped leaves of this unusual house plant are a deep greyish green, but each one is attractively patterned with a network of silvery veins - and the undersides have a burgundy flush.

  • Home care: Originating from tropical regions, they like relatively stable temperatures (ideally above 15C) and a well-lit position that does not get direct sunlight (think steamy jungle!).
