The leaves on this dreamboat are amazing and only get better with age as they grow large and billowy. Pale green satiny leaves, contrasted with light green down the centre and dark green, almost black blotches. Little white blooms pop up amongst the silky foliage when in season. The plants leaves will follow the sun during the day and fold up in a prayer position at night. This plant can grow to 30cm high and naturally grows along the ground of under stories in the humid forests of Brazil, spreading itself out this plant naturally grows horizontally and will benefit from pruning to keep compact.

All plants pictured are considered an accurate representation of the plant you will receive. It represents the rough size, colour and condition. These are plants however and due to changes in climatic conditions and plant variation there will be minor differences.

We are now adding in 'Transport risk' in the product description as some plants are more delicate than others and/or find transport stressful. We will rate in terms of Low, Medium or High risk and discuss specifically to the plant in question. If this information is not provided yet please feel free to reach out via email to ask. Please also note that if plants are sent with new leaves that haven't had the chance to harden off they are susceptible to physical damage in transit as the slightest touch can cause it. 

Please note that we use 'Bugs for Bugs' regularly as a preventative control measure for pests. These predatory bugs are administered in vermiculite. This vermiculite is sprinkles onto the leaves and sometimes remains. 

We know that sometimes it's hard to get an idea of the size of the plant your are purchasing. Photos can make plants look bigger than they actually are. That's why we've made it easy. In each listing you will notice a photo with a background with lines drawn. These lines are distanced 5cm away from each other and the photographs are taken straight on with products against the wall. These photos will be the best indicator of size.
