Description

This beautiful plant is a delight for the eyes. It has a tropical, jungle look about it, one that you can imagine Mogle from The Jungle book playing among such plants. These plants' flowers are exquisite and have such detail. The berries are such a vibrant color that their color is sheer beauty. This plant is one to admire not just by Mogle but all who see it. 

More information.

This evergreen is a flowering tropical plant commonly grown as a houseplant in temperate climates.  It has stunning foliage with shades of pale pink, green, purple or deep red depending on the cultivar. It does require bright light to maintain its foliage colors.  Water the plant when the top of the soil feels dry, never allowing the bottom of the pot to stand in water.   Raise the humidity around the plant by placing it in a saucer filled with pebbles and water.  This plant is sensitive to fluoride and may need to be watered with distilled water.
