The Rhoeo spathacea is native to Belize, Guatemala, and Southern Mexico. Depending on where you come from it may be known as Moses in the Cradle, Oyster Plant or Boat Lily. The Moses in the Cradle has pointed fleshy leaves with deep green leaves and a dark purple underside. They grow well in a warm position but also tolerate cooler temperatures. They have great uses including offices, homes, and patios. In warmer climates, they are used in protected areas in gardens. Your Pinky will develop pups around the base giving it a full look. You can cut out the main cone and allow the pups to grow. Add in some slow-release fertilizer to keep them growing and looking lush. You can plant them in a hanging basket so you look up at the pink and white foliage. They require low to moderate water. A liquid feed every couple of months will help keep them looking exceptional with shiny leaves.
