Plant Bio

Geogenanthus ciliatus

Hike the jungles of the Amazon rainforest and you might find this unique tropical plant. Though it looks exotic, it’s relatively easy to care for inside – just treat it like a peace lily. If it’s really happy, it may produce small, purplish blooms—they’re small and easy to miss, though. The big draw of this houseplant is its shiny, black-purple foliage. Pair it with Silver Dragon Alocasia or Begonia maculata for a stunning, curated combination. Or go goth and enjoy it next to Raven® ZZ!

Note: This plant may have some natural degree of toxicity and may cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Additionally, exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact.
