Care Information

  • Site

    The plant will do well on a windowsill out of direct sunlight, or a well lit shelf. Avoid radiators. 

  • Temperature

    It does not tolerate cold very well at all, so it's best to keep it above 15C. 

  • Water

    It's important not to over-water, as this is the main cause of failure for this plant. Make sure the compost is totally dry before soaking completely. Moderation is absolutely key. 

  • Feeding

    Feed once every second watering during the growing period (late spring to midsummer) with a weak feed solution. 

  • Tip

    If the light is too strong, the leaves can become 'burnt' and lose their colour.

Red Secret

Also known as Elephants Ear, this shiny iridescent plant originates from Borneo and first became commercially available in Hawaii. 

Today, it is pretty rare and something of a collectors item for established plant owners. In a terrarium, it stands out for the sheer black, purple, green and red gloss of its leaves and the way they shimmer and change based on the angle of viewing. 

A teriffic house plant for a warm room with lots of indirect sunlight.
