Erin
Saskatoon, Canada
USDA Zone:2B
3 Feb 2010
This is a beautiful plant with velvety leaves of darkest green. It must not be overwatered or misted, as its soft, thin leaves are prone to rot. Water the plant from below, taking care not to get any water on its crown. This plant also favours being pinched out on its tips to encourage bushiness. After awhile, it can become leggy, but is easy to propagate by stem cuttings and replaced as it gets older.
