This Aussie native features large, glossy, green foliage and has a helpful habit of growing straight up and out in a satisfyingly uniform manner. It's also ideal for indoors as it's quite happy in lower light conditions. Overall a real winner, just don't expect it to keep you dry when you get caught in the next Melbourne downpour.

Plant Care

Position / Light:
This plant will do well in a spot with a fair amount of bright, indirect light, but will also quite happily tolerate a shadier spot.

Care / Water:
Water generously and evenly whenever the top 2-3cm of soil becomes completely dry. This species likes moist soil but (as always) you need to avoid letting in sit it water. We'd therefore recommend placing it outside (or into the bath or shower), giving it a good drench, then leaving plenty of time for all the residual water to drain through.

As a tropical species, this plant will enjoy regular misting to increase the humidity around its leaves, especially when you have the heating on. The leaves also need occasional dusting with a damp cloth to help keep the pores clear and allow the plant to breathe.
