Chlorophytuym amaniense ‘Orange Mandarin’ is also known as the ‘Fire Flash’. It is related to the common Spider Plant.
The plant has shiny green leaves that grow on bright orange stems that radiate from the center of the plant. It has a very tropical look to it!
This plant is very easy to grow and care for. It can tolerate low-light, medium-light, or bright, filtered light conditions. It also does well in artificial lighting – it’s very adaptable. It’s best to keep the plant out of direct afternoon sun, as the leaves might sunburn.
The Orange Mandarin prefers regular watering when the top inch of the soil is dry.
This plant is native to the rainforests of East Africa. It was first brought to the USA in the 1990s, so is still a fairly new plant for most people.
This plant grows to about 12-inches tall by 12-inches wide. The leaves can grow to about 12-inches long.
This is an easy-to-grow plant and is also easy to care for. It does well as a houseplant, or can be grown in a container on a patio in warm months.
