This variety of Nematanthus, often called the "parrot's beak plant" because of the shape of its flowers, is distinguished by its variegated foliage. The leaves, generally oval in shape, are patterned in light green, cream or yellow, giving them a particularly attractive appearance. The flowers, resembling little beaks, are an added bonus to its decorative foliage.

Origin: Native to the tropical forests of South America, Nematanthus gregarius 'Variegata' is adapted to a moist, well-lit environment.

Growth: This is a moderate-growing plant that can reach heights of up to 30 cm. It tends to spread wide and can be ideal for hanging baskets or as a hanging plant.

Flowers: Produces small, teardrop- or beak-shaped flowers, usually orange or red, which contrast nicely with the variegated foliage. These flowers appear mainly during the summer months.

Light: Prefers bright indirect light. Can tolerate a little direct light, but too much direct sun can burn the leaves.

Watering: Requires regular watering, ensuring that the soil is well drained. Allow soil to dry slightly between waterings to prevent root rot.

Substrate: A well-draining potting soil mix is ideal. A mix including perlite or vermiculite can improve drainage.

Temperature: Develops well at temperatures between 15°C and 25°C. Avoid temperatures below 10°C.
