  • What to use me for: I make a statement in your living room, office or workspace, and enjoy a shady tropical garden

    I grow to: 1-1.5m high, 1m wide 

    Where to place me: I like a nice bright spot indoors and a spot with part shade outdoors

  • How to water me
    My leaves will droop if you have left me too long without water. Make sure the first few cms of my soil are dry to touch before giving me a top-up. 

    Potting needs
    I really like a good quality potting mix and will do well in a 170mm pot. 

    Tips and tricks
    If you notice some of my leaves lower down starting to yellow and die off don't stress that is just nature doing its thing - cut them off on an angle at the base. If you notice my big leaves collecting dust, give them a wipe down with a damp cloth. 

  • Delivery
  • Once your new plant babes are dispatched you will receive tracking information so you can keep an eye on its journey. Once in transit, packages usually take 2-10 business days to arrive. If you need it delivered ASAP we recommend upgrading to express post to get it there faster. 

    So your babes arrive in the best condition we hold off shipping if there is an upcoming public holiday or crazy weather event. We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants, and fast, free delivery to your door.
