Leaves are pretty as long as you can keep it happy. Mine requires very frequent water and a good amount of light. If it’s unhappy, the leaves start getting brown inky spots that turn the whole leaf brown quickly. Luckily, new leaves have been unfurling from the middle so it’s still lush.

So far this plant isn’t super happy with me, I’m not sure why. It’s barely growing.
It’s getting medium light so I don’t hini that’s the problem.
The soil it came in just never dries, I let weeks go between watering, it’s just always moist, and that makes me nervous about root rot and suffocation.
There is also very contradictory information online about its water requirements. Greg recommends to water super frequently, keeping it moist at all times, but many places recommend the opposite, to let it dry significantly between watering.

So, yeah, confusing.

This one has been through near death and came back strong. She’s a tough cookie. I let her get thirsty before watering and help keep her soil aerated by poking her soil gently with a chopstick every month or so. Her beautiful red leaves are gorgeous.

This plant and I really don’t get along very well. While I really like his colors, he has been very picky about where he wants to be and he just never really filled in nicely. I see other people’s full and gorgeous, but Joe here has just been a drama queen!
