Nautilocalyx forgettii

Grown at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

N. forgettii can be an attractive foliage plant, particular when grown in beds for public display, as are these plants. It can also be a relatively easy indoor plant if given adequate humidity and reasonable warmth. The leaves can be darker if grown with less light. The small white flowers, produced along the stem from the leaf axils, are a pleasing contrast to the dark foliage.
