Persian Shield is native to Myanmar and is a very flashy and highly sought after plant. It likes bright indirect light and to be kept moist - it can be a bit of a drama queen when it doesn't get enough water. It is a quick grower and likes a frequent application of fertiliser - look for one with a high K rating in its N:P:K ratio. Can attract mites - keep a vigilant eye out.
