30th November 2018

Words by Jessica Peace

WHAT’S IT GOOD FOR?

Apart from being bloody gorgeous, this frondalicious beauty will clean out any nasties knockin’ about in your (filthy) rooms.

WHAT’S IT BAD FOR?

Well, it’s toxic mate so keep it away from little people and paws.

HOW NOT TO KILL IT?

Keep it shady, they like it humid too so treat yo self to a mister (the watering can-like variety), or shove it in the bathroom with just a little natural light; if it starts flashin’ its roots above the soil then its screaming out for a bigger pot, so protect its modesty and give it one.

… for other plants and ways not to kill’em, have a nose through Nik’s book.
