Useful to know:
I come from tropical regions of Brazil.
I can grow to a height of about 60cm.
I like bright indirect light - if I'm in too shady a spot, my leaves will be less variegated.
Keep my soil evenly moist but never soggy. I don't like to dry out, and don't like cold or hard water.
I'm more than happy living in normal room temperatures of between 16-24 degrees C.
Fertilise me once a month in spring and summer and every 2 months during autumn and winter.
I'm easy, just cut off any dead leaves. Click here to buy Never Never Golden Mosaic.
I like humidity so please mist me and place me near other plants or on a pebble tray with water.
Although I'm often listed as non-toxic, I can cause individual allergic reactions.
I am often confused with my cousin the Calathea. We both belong to the Marantaceae family but I have more elongated oblong leaves.
