Size (Can grow to)
The Rhoeo spathacea is native to Belize, Guatemala, and Southern Mexico. Depending on where you come from it may be known as Moses in the Cradle, Oyster Plant or Boat Lily. The Rhoeo Gold has pointed fleshy leaves with a golden yellow on top with a mid green stripe and pink beneath. They grow well in a warm position but also tolerate cooler temperatures. They have great uses including offices and homes and patios in warmer climates they are used in protected areas in gardens. Your Rhoeo Gold will develop pups around the base giving it a full look. You can cut out the main cone and allow the pups to grow; they will fill up a large pot if you pot them up. Add in some slow-release fertiliser to keep them growing and looking lush. Plant them in a hanging basket so you look up at the striped foliage. They require low to moderate water and a liquid feed every couple of months will help keep them looking exceptional.
