This plant has a weird name, so let’s call it Maggie. They love growing upright, displaying deep red stems and glossy, heart-shaped leaves which give it a tropical jungle look.

LOVING YOUR PLANT
Maggie enjoys indirect light. Direct sunlight will damage the leaves so a sheltered location with partial shade would suit it best.
Maggie doesn’t like to sit in water. Keep the soil moist and when the top is dry give it the smallest amount of water - little and often is best.
This plant comes from the tropics, but we’ve found average home humidity to be just fine. During Winter, central heating can reduce humidity. A way of keeping the humidity high is to group several plants together or by sitting them on a tray of pebbles and water. Misting it a few times a week with filtered, room temperature water will also help.
Make sure to clean all leaves with a dry cloth – dust can affect its absorption of light.
You can feed your plant once a month during growing season and every two months in Winter with a balanced fertiliser.
Toxic for dogs and cats.
