It was previously known as Xanthosoma Lindenii, but a few years back has been reclassified. As she's commonly known amongst house plant fanatics, the' Angel Wing' plant is a part of the Araceae family and native to Columbia. They are identified by their large, green, arrowhead-shaped leaves with prominent white/cream-colored veins.

Strong, heart-shaped leaves with a slightly wavy edge and a contrasting pattern: These are the specific characteristics of this coveted rarity! Due to the dark green color of the stately leaves, the bright drawing that adorns each leaf in the form of curved lines comes into its own. A lovely collector's item for all exotic fans!
Provide her with a warm place in your living space, preferably facing east or west. However, you should avoid placing her in direct sunlight, since otherwise there may be signs of burns on the foliage. The temperature for her to thrive should be at is 18 ° C all year round.
Due to the large leaf mass, Xanthosoma evaporates abundant water. Therefore, the water requirement is enormous, and it must never dry out. However, stagnant moisture leads to root damage and yellow leaves. How often you have to water depends mainly on the room temperature, the amount of sunlight, and the pot's size.
The plant is 40 - 50 cm tall and will be shipped in a 14 cm pot.
