Stunningly attractive, glossy, deeply lobed leaves will bring a feel of the tropics to your home or office, and often do best in diffused natural light (i.e. keep out of direct sunlight) although artificial light will suffice if necessary. If you have the right climate to grow it outdoors, you can look forward to large leaves up to 1.2m long supported on a thick woody trunk marked with distinctive tear-drop shaped leaf scars where older leaves have been shed. One of the prettiest tropical shrubs, it can successfully be grown as a houseplant in more temperate climates.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 20-25 degrees C. Seeds sometimes germinate within 4 to 6 weeks although some may take very much longer so please be patient. Plant out in the open ground in warmer countries or in a large container elsewhere.
