An old favourite potted plant that has stood the test of time, with striking coloured leaves of apple green boldly marked with a bronze brown cross shape. The leaves are also heavily dimpled and shiny which is also an attractive feature. Good for indoors in a well lit place or for sheltered patios and verandahs.
