    The rounded, lobed leaves of this striking house plant look a little like a geranium, but they have a leathery texture and an irregular creamy variegation. An excellent and unusual addition to the collection, it is mainly grown for its foliage, but every so often it may also produce airy sprays of greenish yellow flowers. 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: Water moderately when in growth, allowing the top of the compost to dry out before repeating the process, and keep dryer in winter. Mist the leaves occasionally with water and make sure winter temperatures are maintained above 15°C. Repot every couple of years.
