This is probably the most popular indoor plant right now with their lush green leaves and signature holes - they truly make a statement in whichever space they’re found. Best of all, they can basically grow to fit ANY space.
Should be in a warm climate away from the burning direct sunlight
Clean regularly with soft damp cloth
Dry out the top 4cm of the soil to avoid root rot or wilting/yellow leaves
Fast-growing and are pretty hard to hurt, they can also be placed in basically any spot around the house. These plants are perfect for absolute beginners as they are SUPER low maintenance and are very pretty!! The leaves are heart-shaped and are a white + green marble pattern - how cute is that?
No need to regularly fertilise
Water the plant WELL once a week
Water once every other week in winter
