Not pet friendly

  • Native to the Phillipines and northeastern Celebes.
  • 6-24” height, 6-24” width
growth habit
  • Clumping, dense, bush-like growth

light requirement
  • Bright indirect to low light conditions
    • Grows best with moderate light conditions (4-6 ft from bright window)
    • Will TOLERATE low light conditions but plant growth will be slower and more sparse
special requirements
  • Soil needs to dry out COMPLETELY and this can take weeks. Very prone to root/stem rot if roots stay too wet. Water thoroughly when soil becomes completely dry.
  • Low-light indoor plant
    • Small versions can be used for table/shelf decoration
    • Larger plants can be used as floor plants 
  • Shade plant for outdoors in Spring/summer
common problems
  • Yellowing, mushy outer leaves
    • Too frequent watering (allow plant to dry completely between thorough watering)
  • Yellow to brown crispy outer leaves
    • Could be under watering but more likely just the plant sending its energy to growing new leaves and ditching old small leaves
    • Lack of fertilization
  • Brown tips on leaves
    • Lack of humidity
      • This is purely a cosmetic issue that is difficult to avoid. Misting can assist with humidity to help avoid brown tips.
