If you have never grown a house plant before and are looking for something that is virtually indestructible, then look no further – as this is probably the toughest and most tolerant house plant you can find. It’s a good-looker too, with attractively patterned leaves that don’t flop or spread. It’s great for tight spaces, or where you want something upright.
Please note: it is quite common for these plants to have small nicks or scars on their leaves. This does not affect their long-term health or vigour in any way.
- Home care: The main thing to avoid with this plant is overwatering, so only water (avoiding the crown) when the compost gets quite dry. In winter you can cut back even more and only water every month or two and keep temperatures above 10°C. Repot every few years when the roots start to split the pot.
