A unique plant, the Schismatoglottis wallichii, popularly called the Drop Tongue plant, is a rare foliage plant that is relatively easy to care for. It features oblong-ovate leaves that are a striking green with 2 prominent lateral silver bands. If anything, this plant was made to catch eyes (and make you trip over your tongue).
As a plant that lives natively in the underwood of tropical humid forests, the Schismatoglottis wallichii thrive best when provided with similar conditions. It prefers bright indirect light and moist soil at all times. Water about twice a week, however make sure that the plant is not sitting in water.
The Schismatoglottis wallichii does well in normal household humidity but can benefit from the occasional boost in humidity. You can use a humidifier to increase humidity at home or mist it every other day. Placing it in a tray filled will pebbles and water will also do the trick.
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
