An unusual example of the colourful Chinese Evergreen. We favour it for its clear white stems and exciting leaf patterns.
Introduced from Asia to European glasshouses in 1885, these plants have been bred, hybridised and cultivated into a neverending array of cultivars.
When it comes to watering time, check the substrate regularly by testing with your finger: if the top 1-2 cm has dried out, give the plant a thorough soak. Allow all excess water to drain away.
Generally robust and easy-to-care-for, you must keep these plants away from draughts and cold window sills for they will not tolerate chilly spells. They will inform you in no uncertain terms if they're unhappy...by dropping their lower leaves.
Steady warmth, bright to semi-shade light and consistent watering will reward you with a happy plant.
