Persian Shield

“Wonderfully adaptable with beautiful iridescent purple foliage


Provide consistently moist soil or it will start to wilt. It also needs high humidity so keep that in mind if youre planning to put it indoors.


Can handle full sun to partial shade, but if you’re at all in doubt, opt for slightly shadier conditions. As these often grow under the cover of trees, dappled sunlight is just fine.


Propagating this by cutting is best and easiest. They root well in water or in consistently moist soil.
