Praised for being one of the easiest indoor trees to grow, this plant can reach around six feet in height. It’s quite a spectacle in any room, given its long leaves that are coloured in greens and dark reds around the edges. It’s also useful for removing toxins found in everyday household cleaning products.
While the Marginata is a tall plant, it’s a slow grower, so don’t expect it to shoot up instantly. You know what they say – Rome wasn’t built in a day!
Neglect this plant for a while and it will probably still survive – not that we’d recommend you do that, of course! Show the Marginata love with humidity and frequent mistings of its leaves.

Jo’s Top Tip
This houseplant is known to shed its bottom leaves as it grows, so try not to worry, it’s usual behaviour from the Marginata.
Pot type and color may vary depending on stock availability.
