Special Notes: Members of the Dichorisandra genus are easy and showy plants to grow. They can tolerate lower light and dryness and still thrive. This compact grower displays intensely blue blooms that arch gracefully from the stems over a long period.  -A wonderful container plant that rewards with a profusion of true-blue flowers dangling from pendulous stems throughout most of the year. Feed lightly during warmer months.
