Product Information

Murdannia isn't one of those attention-seeking divas that just scream at you to pay it attention. It's a rather more subtle plant with sophisticated, wavy edged leaves, highlighted with a margin of deeper green that makes it stand out for no other reason than it is extremely beautiful.

The strap-shaped leaves slowly spiral out from its central base, creating a delightful, gently sprawling habit which soon fills pots with lush greenery. Occasionally, at the tips of these stems, airy sprays of creamy white star shaped flowers will appear.

A native of China and tropical Asia, the plant was originally grown for medicinal use, where it was used as an anti-inflammatory and also reportedly as a cure for cancer. Nowadays, it's more recognised as a plant that can help to clean the air in your home.

Very easy to grow and perfect for even the most novice of gardeners, Murdannia is best grown as a foliage plant, in a shady spot indoors.

Supplied as an established plant in a 12cm pot, ready to go onto a table near you, ultimately reaching around H40cm x W40cm

Care Information

  • A frost-tender houseplant, just make sure that it is in a bright spot but not in direct sun, with a constant average temperature no lower than 10C in the winter.
  • Water regularly when in full growth from spring to autumn, and reduce watering in the winter, leaving the compost to dry out between watering.
  • Plants benefit from extra humidity, so mist the leaves occasionally.
