Plant details

This is a fine foliage houseplant with dark green, arrow-shaped leaves that are suffused with white along the veins. Sometimes it produces greenish white, to cream, flowers, or spathes. Grow it in a light position, out of direct sunlight. Water freely when growing actively and feed once a month. Reduce watering in winter. Support it with a moss pole which is kept moist during the growing season. Contact with the sap may irritate the skin, so try and avoid handling this plant.
