With its remarkable, iridescent, colorful leaves and delicate, swaying stems, this plant is irresistible to most collectors! Its leaves grow large, in keeping with other Aroid cousins like Caladiums, Colocasia and Xanthosoma, but these plants are more house friendly remaining smaller and more manageable at a maximum height of two to three feet. These plants can be grown indoors or outdoor
