While the larger variety grows into a substantial indoor specimen, this remains compact, only growing 1m tall, but offering the same interesting leaf shape. Besides being a feature, the leathery, deep-green leaves also help to purify the air. Place in a position that receives bright indirect light. It can tolerate limited morning sun.
Water when the surface of the soil becomes slightly dry. Overwatering or insufficient light may cause brown spots on the leaves or leaf drop. The plant will appreciate a misting of the leaves in very hot and dry weather. Feed with liquid fertiliser at half strength once a month during its growing season.
