There are so many beautiful indoor plants to choose from but the striking leaves of this 'furry feather' will make it your favourite plant quickly. Long and slender foliage, deep green in colour with a feather-like shape and a rich purple underside, make it an interesting bit of indoor greenery. It gets its common name from the furry or velvety feel of the underside of the leaf. Popular with tropical gardeners as well and perfect when potted in one of our decorative containers.

  • Generally they like the soil to be moist. This means watering the soil well and allowing the plant to drain off the excess water. Plants allowed to sit in water or kept too wet develop root rot very easily.

  • Trim off old foliage to tidy up plant.
