The Red Chestnut has a South American heritage and is part of the Bromeliad family. You can't miss its striped leaves which have distinct red and white colouring. It's a tropical plant and very easy to care for, tolerating neglect - not that anyone could forget about this beauty!

This plant is an epiphyte, which means that despite its tendancy to grow on other plants, it doesn't harm them in the process. It doesn't have any roots so gets its nutrients though its leaves.

Keep this plant hydrated by watering into the well of its leaves as that is where it will drink from. Also, the more light the Red Chestnut recieves, the redder its leaves will go. Just don't scorch it with direct sunlight.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
