A tall, elegant house plant with neon yellow and green striped foliage yet surprisingly easy to care for. Dracaenas do not like wet feet so let the soil dry out between waterings and place in a high light situation.

If you are into bromeliads, then this is a beauty! Aechmea gamosepala is fast-growing and water-wise, with incredible pink and blue inflorescences.

This relatively new arrival is a tropical houseplant with stunning red and green pointed leaves. It will add colour and brightness to any interior decor palette, and is easy to care for. Aglaonemas need high light, humidity, and well-draining soil, and do be careful not to overwater them.

ʻBrasil’ is a bold cultivar of the classic Heartleaf Philodendron with variegated leaves that look almost painted in stripes of yellow and lime-green on deep- green foliage. The stems have a vaguely orange hue, making this an extremely beautiful plant. Added to this, philodendrons are easy to care for, no green thumb needed!

Calatheas are tropical houseplants grown exclusively for their wonderful foliage. Even more interesting is that these amazing plants adjust their colours kinetically during the day as they respond to heat, light and humidity. As a result of this ability these plants are commonly referred to as prayer plants, as their leaves fold up together at night.
