Also known as Boat Lily, Cradle Lily, Oyster Plant, Moses in the Bullrushes.


Green with pink underside of the leaf. In low light conditions, it will be more green, in high light conditions, it can become purple. 

In low light conditions, it can be a bit leggy and will stretch looking for the light which will produce thinner stems that are not as strong.

In high light conditions, it will stay compact in form. 

Fast-growing, it benefits from the occasional 'haircut'. Prune back long stems and it will regrow with multiple stems.
