Bright red leaves with prominent red veins are the attraction of this Brazilian plant. Luckily for us, this tropical native happens to adapt well to being indoors, making it a spectacular room accent.
Pot size: 6 cm (diameter)
Plant size: 10 cm (without the pot)
Many varieties have lance-shaped leaves, but some are more rounded. The leaves grow 8-16 cm long, in opposite pairs. Small, greenish-white flowers may appear in summer. You can pinch them off if you want because they aren’t nearly as stunning as the brilliant foliage.
Water thoroughly, aiming to keep the potting mix lightly moist at all times
