Regarded by many Austronesian cultures as a sacred plant!
The Good Luck plant also goes by the common names Hawaiian Ti plant, Palm Lily and Cabbage Palm. It is native to Southeast Asia, particularly the Pacific Islands and New Zealand. Regarded by many Austronesian cultures as a sacred plant that wards off evil spirits and the green-leaved varieties symbolize peace and healing! So it is hugely popular to have both indoors and out.
It likes bright light and moist soil, so don't leave it to dry out too much. It also likes warmth, so keep it away from draughts. In the wild, it can grow to 3m in height but our UK weather means it's not suitable for outdoors, so you're unlikely to see heights anywhere near that!
I am a tropical beauty, primarily grown from my foliage which features streaks of light and dark green, cream and hot pink.
I like bright light so feel free to pop me in the sun (when there is some!)
I like my soil to be moist but not soggy. You can leave my soil to dry out during winter between waterings
I like it warm but live comfortably in rooms above 15 degrees C
During the summer months, I like to be fed weekly with a nitrogen-rich liquid fertiliser.
My leaves are toxic but you'd have to eat a lot to get ill!
I like my leaves to be misted and if my leaves get dusty, put me under a cold shower! Feel free to trim my stems if I start growing to wildly.
If I start losing my leaves, try upping the humidity and temperature around m
