Both the foliage and flowers of ‘Black Mamba’ stand out, though it is most admired as a foliage plant. Its velvety, star-shaped leaves are nearly black with contrasting burgundy undersides, and in winter it produces a lovely display of pink flowers.
Pot size: 12 cm (diameter)
Plant size: 20 cm (without the pot)
Grow ‘Black Mamba’ in a site with bright filtered light and moist, well-drained, acid to neutral soil. It makes a wonderful houseplant so long as it’s provided high humidity, to prevent leaf browning, and the soil is allowed to dry out slightly between watering.
Keep the soil moist, but not soggy
