Trailing indoor plant with a perky habit and big leaves, lush and very attractive planted in a hanging basket. Arrow-shaped leaves, pale green with white centre, add light to planting schemes. Can be planted outside in tropical gardens although it can naturalise if it likes the location, so keep it in check near bushland. Avoid sap - handle carefully and keep away from pets and small children.
