We don't come across this plant too often, so if you like him, don't hang about. From the humid rainforests of the Vanuatu and Solomon Islands of east of Australia, and he's loved for his large, striking glossy foliage.

Light:
 This fella likes bright, indirect light. Keep him out of direct sun, which can scorch his leaves.

Water: Stick a finger in his soil once a week - if it comes out dry then it's time for a drink. Humidity is plus, so mist regularly. 

Height: He's slow-growing, so be patient, but can eventually reach heights of 5ft. Feed him once a month from spring to summer, and rotate his pot often during the summer so that he grows straight.


PM tip: Wipe his leaves if dust builds up so that he can breathe properly. 

As like many houseplants, he can be mildly toxic if ingested.
