Medium Apoballis Acuminatissima 'Lavallaei'

Regular price$45.00

Once believed to be a species of Schismatoglottis plant, the Apoballis Acuminatissima was recognized as a new genus in 2009! These plants almost look like they're in cam-flange, with mottled silver variegated leaves that then also have a striking deep burgundy underside. The Lavallaei is native to Indonesia where it grows in the humid tropical forests. The care is similar to many other Aroid plants, and can most closely be compared to Anthuriums. 



The Lavallaei is happiest in a bright, indirect light. Place then near a bright sunny window, but not in the way of the direct rays, or else you risk burning the leaves.


They like moist soil, so water when you feel that the top inch or so of the soil is dry. They love humidity, so if you do not have a humidifier, you can put pebbles in a tray and place the pot on top. Any excess water in the soil will drain into the tray and keep the roots humid without adding too much moisture to the soil.


Prune occasionally control its size and shape, or to remove damaged bits. The best time to prune is in the spring when your plant is actively growing and will recover more easily. Be sure to wear gloves to protect your hands from the plant’s sap, and put down a towel or tarp to protect your furniture and floor. Use a sterilized shears to prevent spreading pathogens to your plant.

What people are saying


I purchased a Large Chinese Evergreen as a gift for a friend and she loved it. The blue planter looked exactly like the photo and worked perfectly with her decor. The delivery was extremely fast and their customer service was very responsive and polite. The plant looked beautiful and healthy. I plan to purchase one for myself! I am very pleased with my purchase. Thanks again!
