Why We Love It

This leafy houseplant will have you tickled pink thanks to its fantastic features; it produces these big leaves that look halfway between a fig leaf and that of a Swiss cheese plant.

These leaves grow from bright red stems that are both fuzzy and furry.

They're certainly a talking point and will be loved by plant pals coming to visit.

How to Plant

Into a Pot

If you're planting into a pot or container, have a hand trowel and a watering tool ready, plus a container larger than the one your plant arrived in.

  1. Pour a small amount of soil at the bottom of your chosen container.
  2. Put the plant in place and then back-fill soil around the rootball.
  3. Lightly water after repotting. The soil should be just damp enough that if you press your forefinger into the soil it is moist above the top of your nail.
  4. Regularly check the soil is moist but not soaking or sitting in water.
  5. Make sure to place your plant away from any harsh drafts.
