The plantlets are formed on stalks about 6 ft long, each plantlet will have a spray of bright red flowers that produce the orange berries. The stalk will bend over in time and the plantlet will root. I cut the plantlets off and root them in pots or directly into the ground. I've never seen it in a nursery shop. It was given to me.

Pretty! I'm not sure what it is but the leaves remind me of Stromanthe (Stromanthe thalia)

*Blush* Thanks Lin, I checked that out and found it in the plant data base with my name against it. The pic is the same plant about 3 years ago. I'm still not sure about it being Thalia because I cannot find any description that includes the 6 ft stem with the plantlet on top. The Stromanthe that I googled all seem to be house plant size in various colors.
Does anyone have one with the 6 ft plant stalk?
