A nearly black-leaved version of one of the easiest and most popular houseplants. New leaves emerge an electric lime-green color, but as they mature, each leaflet slowly becomes a rich purple-black shade. Makes an amazing contrast to light green, fine foliage plants like asparagus fern.
Possibly the most undemanding indoor plant. Native to East Africa, this sculptural plant is happy in bright, indirect light, but is also one of the most tolerant of low light conditions. As a bonus, you only need water approximately once a month; underground rhizomes and fleshy stems store water like a camel. And as a bonus, a great plant for cleaning the air.
