This fun little houseplant will need a bit of coddling to keep it beautiful, but It's worth it. Mist it while you brush your teeth, give it a light feed when the weather is hot, keep it out of scorching sunlight and chilly draughts. It stays small and neat, ideal for indoor enjoyment, so find it a pretty forever pot to show it off. BTW We get the raindrop name - the glossy leaves are almost round, tapering to a gentle point, but we don't get the coin-leaf name. Have you ever seen a pointed coin? Wouldn't it wear holes in your pockets?
