    This is a popular plant with a reputation for doing well in low light. I have kept a "petite" version for many years, both at home and in a commercial setting. The dark green leaves are pretty. It needs attention to watering. Good news is it wilts when dry and demands water; bad news is that such events cause some older leaves to turn yellow each time, so it will thin the plant if it happens too often. The dry air of the commercial setting seems to make it more prone to these drying events.

    This shade-loving plant has wonderful foliage and beautiful flowers that bloom whenever they want. They love humidity, plenty of water and moisture and general fertilizing.
