A striking ornamental feature plant perfect for indoors or outdoors. Lush green, heart-shaped leaves create a luxurious, tropical feel. Enjoys a part to full shade position outdoors and a well-lit space indoors. Fruit is edible only when fully ripened and will take approximately a year to mature.
If kept indoors, remove dust from foliage with a damp soft cloth to allow the plant to breath and absorb moisture. Mist foliage with a trigger sprayer to keep it looking fresh.

Water regularly until established. Be careful not to overwater when using as an indoor plant - water weekly in cooler climates and more often in warmer climates. If planting outside, mulch regularly to help retain soil moisture.
Use a pair of clean, sharp hand secateurs to remove dead, damaged, diseased or insect-infested stems back to a healthy section, as required. To keep your indoor plant compact and healthy you can remove up to one-third of its length.
Discard cut stems in the waste bin to avoid unwanted plants from regrowing from discarded cuttings.
