The Dirt

Native to tropical Asia. This is a unique plant that not everyone has seen before. The top leaf is green with purple veins and the bottom leaf is inverted. Every part of this plant is visually luring! The stems can be propagated easily.

Part Sun

This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Water twice a week. Before watering, feel the soil, the top layer should be dry, if not dry wait a day or two. If the soil still is wet, you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.

Pet Friendly

Yay! This plant is not toxic to our furry friends (regardless, you don’t want them to chew on this beauty).
