Farfugium japonicum 'Firefly' is a very unique plant originating in the Far East, and commonly grown large used in landscaping. It is similar to the "tractor seat plant" but with interesting glowing yellow spotted variegation that looks almost as if it is diseased, but we promise you it is not! Does well as an indoor tropical or an outdoors plant in zones 7-10.
You will receive a similar plant to what is pictured in a 4inch grower pot.

***HOW TO CARE FOR***
☀️Light: Can tolerate low to medium light but do best in bright indirect light.
💧Water: Likes the soil to be damp at all times. Do not let the soil completely dry out. Wait until it is down to 80% then water and allow to dry down again. Be conservative watering indoors as it takes longer to dry out in larger pots and if the plant stays wet too long, the roots may rot.
🍼Food: Give a balanced liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks during the growing season (fall-spring) at half the recommended rate.

We will not replace/refund plants that have suffered minor damage. This includes yellowing leaves, browning edges/tips, bent or ripped leaves. These are all consequences of shipping plants online. We try our best to avoid all these problems, but it is very common for plants to yellow or even drop leaves after going through shipping. This does not necessarily mean your plant is dying. Contact us with pictures for any concerns.
Our policy does not cover packages lost or stolen by the carrier. The buyer is responsible for opening up a claim with USPS if this happens
