A very decorative plant with contrasting colours and shapes on the foliage. The striking, large, rounded leaves are mid-green in colour and are heavily speckled in greens and creams with a hint of rosy red with a purple underside. Popular with tropical gardeners and a favourite indoor plant as well when potted in a decorative container.
Generally they like the soil to be moist. This means watering the soil well and allowing the plant to drain off the excess water. Plants allowed to sit in water or kept too wet develop root rot very easily.
