Mikayla is a cousin of Abby's, even though they may pass as sisters. Mikayla is the friendlier and outgoing one of the two with her much rounder leaves and colorful pink-purplish stalks. Easy-growing and approachable, maybe ask her on a date?
Medium to bright, indirect light.
Once a week when soil is nearly dry 2" down.
Mildly toxic to pets.
Higher the humidity the better.
A good gift as she's hard to find.
Pro-tip: Don't place her in direct light or else she'll burn, like Usher.
The morocco is native to the tropics of Southeast Asia. It has beautiful dark, glossy green leaves with streaks of silver veins that rest on pink to dark purple stems.
They thrive with bright, filtered light, regular waterings, and high humidity. It's not as hard as you may think.
The morocco will occasionally shed older leaves. Not to worry, you're doing great. Older growth is often discarded to divert energy for new growth. Misting this plant regularly will help it thrive.
Size will vary, but total height is about 14 inches and container width is 6 inches.
