Description

While this plant is beautiful, we do not recommend it for new plant parents. Requiring a high amount of light in order to maintain it’s variegation and not being forgiving if you miss a watering make it rather finicky. If you enjoy a challenge or you feel you’re up to the task grab one of these before they’re gone again!
