Add a touch of the tropics to your garden with this hardy, tropical plant. A native from North East Queensland, down to coastal Central NSW, this plant can be found growing as an understory plant in rainforests. It grows best when planted in damp positions with filtered sunlight, that mimic a rainforest setting. It produces spikes of tiny white flowers that are enclosed in green bracts. When fertilised, many small bright orange fruits are formed all over the spike. This is an ideal choice for planting near water features. Leaves can grow to 1m in length once established.

Cultivate the soil before planting. Dig a hole that is twice as wide and deep as the container. Remove the plant from the container and place it in the hole, so that the soil level of the plant is the same as the surrounding soil. Fill the hole with soil, tamp down firmly, and water well, even if the soil is moist.
Plant in a damp soil position.
Prune old and damaged leaves from the base of this plant in spring. If light frost damages the leaves, simply prune them to grow new leaves in warmer weather.
