A tropical sculptural herbaceous perennial plant that works well in containers but must be brought inside during cold winters. Works well as a houseplant.

Plant in a peat-based potting soil and give it plenty of bright light. If kept outdoors in the summer provide it with afternoon shade. Allow the top 1-2 inches to dry out between waterings and cut back on the water during the winter months.
