The leaves are big and beautiful and are pushed out near constantly. My plant has grown so much in the year I’ve had it, and has never required any annoying level of care.
The leaves split naturally, don’t worry about it! You didn’t do anything wrong. The leaves are large and collect dust, so dust once a week.
It’s an architectural element in its own right. The curves are amazing and being an extra touch of softness and vibrancy to a space.
Outdoor light is best, if left indoors use a pot you can place outside / inside. Plant food helps for steady growth!
I’m in love with my BOP! I started out with a one gallon pot and now he’s over 5 feet tall!
One of my favorite kind of plants. Beautiful green leafs and the flowers! 😍
Bright indirect light and allow top 2 inches to dry before watering
