About Rick - yellow stripe

Rick is an impressive specimen who will, in return for just a little attention from time to time, happily show off to you his shiny, elegant leaves. If you're extremely lucky, he will even grow small, white flowers as well – and all for minimal effort!


Estimated height: 150cm.

While Rick can grow up to 15m high in the wild. And although you can't expect him to reach his natural heights, with the right conditions and care, Rick will take a couple of years to reach 2m.


Rick likes being placed in spots with either light shade or gently filtered sunlight. He also enjoys humid conditions, which makes him a good candidate for a kitchen or bathroom, if you have the space.


Be careful not to leave Rick in bright direct sunlight, as his leaves will scorch. Likewise, too little light and new leaves will appear quite small.

Watering and feeding

Rick enjoys a "drying time" between waterings, which means watering well and then waiting until the top inch of soil is dry before the next watering. 

Living with pets and children

Toxic if ingested.
