    The large and highly patterned foliage of this exotic-looking gem, will bring a touch of the jungle into your home. Each perfectly formed grey-green leaf is held on a slender stem, and it has a slightly corrugated surface, with deep green markings that follow the pattern of the veins. A show-stopper, that will flourish in filtered light.

Water regularly in the summer, reducing through the winter, and feed with a liquid feed in spring/ summer every 3-4 weeks.
