DESCRIPTION: Compact houseplant grown indoors; impressive tree when allowed to grow full-size. Large firm broad leaves with a curvy edge, reminiscent in shape of a violin, hence the common name. Young leaves will need time to develop their wiggles.
USE IN: Easycare indoor, container or tropical garden plant. Needs a sheltered frost-free spot over 10C.
CARE: Mulch and water with a seaweed based fertiliser on planting to reduce transplant shock, follow with regular watering until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Apply a slow release fertiliser twice yearly and protect from frost. container plants may need extra feed and a repot into fresh soil once a year. Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to keep them healthy and looking good.
