This plant grows large, long leaves at the end of long stems and will occasionally flower near its base.
While the conditions listed below are ideal growing conditions for this plant, it's famous for being able to survive in much less than ideal conditions.
Lighting: Medium to high indirect light.
Water: Water with regularity once the top inch or two of the soil has dried out. Tap water and soft water can cause mineral build up in the tips of the leaves, so try to use filtered water.
