This plant is a native to South Africa, a real talking point it has large exotic looking paddle shaped leaves on long elegant stems. The leaves are a gorgeous glossy dark green colour, as they mature they do naturally begin to split. This is a relatively low maintenance houseplant that offers a big impact.

Light conditions: will thrive in bright light and can cope with a few hours of early morning or later afternoon sun, however do not place right next to a window to avoid extremes of temperature.
Neediness: Enjoys being placed outside during hot summer months.
Watering: during warmer weather ensure soil is kept moist but not soggy. In the cooler months allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Do not overwater as the roots can rot. Enjoys humidity so mist regularly.
Ideal location: bathrooms and kitchens, south facing rooms.
Rate of growth: fast growing. Leaves can reach 2m long, once the plant reaches 2m in height it is able to produce blooms.
Temperature: will do best kept above 18c.
Pets: This plant is safe around cats and dogs.
