Quilted leaves with bumps and patterns in two tones of green and a silver sheen. The stems have a handsome pink blush.
A sweet little plant that grows quickly and is simple to care for. Outdoors in a protected area it makes a great ground cover.
Size: 15-30cm x 10-30cm
I see the light: Bright, indirect light is ideal. You should be able to read during the day in their position in the room without turning on a light. If you only have artificial light, they will need about eight to ten hours a day.
Water Needs: Water then allow the top soil of the pot to dry out before watering again, they will forgive you if you miss a watering or two. You are more likely to kill them with kindness as over watering can lead to rotting.
They appreciate some humidity – especially in homes with ducted heating/air conditioning. It isn’t as vital as for many houseplants, so you might get away without it. But, you can provide some humidity for your beloved plant, by placing them over a plate with rocks and water, this will naturally form humidity around the plant. Or if you want to get very fancy and grow a few of these tropical treats, purchasing a humidifier is a good investment – they are also good for you. Or you could grow it in a bathroom which naturally gets a good dose of steam. Or grow with other plants where the humidity will naturally form around the plants. They are also fantastic in terrariums.
I will Survive: Use a diluted liquid fertiliser spring/summer, they aren’t overly hungry. Keep them clear of cold draughty positions or they will sulk. They have a shallow root system so don’t need a huge pot.
Pinch them back in spring/summer to encourage bushy growth. They are fast friends but can become lanky after a couple of years, at this time you can propagate with tip cuttings.
