Where To Plant
You can plant these plants in large pots as they will grow to up to 10ft in height and really huge leaves. If grown indoors, they will be good accents in patios or living rooms. When grown outdoors, it will be good as soil bed centerpiece. You can also grow them in baskets while the plant is young.
How To Plant
Make sure that the pot you choose has drainage holes where the excess water will ooze out. Plant the seed or cutting directly to the soil and water generously and regularly for the next three to five weeks.
When the stems become thicker and baby leaves start appearing, lessen the watering interval to four times a week. As it grows, prune as needed. Fertilize the plant once a month with diluted fertilizer.
