This semi-tropical produces large coarse textured foliage and exotic flowers. Plants can be somewhat tempermental in their growth requirements. Apparently they need to be repotted every year or so and need good air circulation. This plant is well adapted to growing in containers. Plant in a fertile, well drained soil and provide filtered sunlight during the day. The foliage looks somewhat like the peace plant (spathiphyllum).
