A tropical shrub that can grow to 1 metre tall. Deep green, soft and velvety top leaves with a deep pink/purple/red underside. Bright pink flowers and berries grow on the base of the stem. I have these only in limited numbers. 

Current Pot Size: 110mm

Synonyms: Rose Grape

Light: Filtered light to full shade, categories 3-5 (please see our blog on plant light requirements)

Soil: Well draining, moisture retaining - Soil type x (please see our blog on soil requirements)

Fertiliser: As directed on your fertiliser of choice. Fortnightly or monthly during the growing season (please see our blog on plant food)

Watering: Don't over water, they like to dry out between waterings. 

Maintenance: Keep this plant warm over winter. This plant excretes sugar through its leaves that will turn black over time. These are growth sugars and indicate a healthy plant. This is a normal function and nothing to worry about. 

Transport Risk: Med - the leaves on this plant are velvety (susceptible to a few small marks from rubbing) and because they are large the chance of a leaf breaking in transit is possible.

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.
