This plant would haven’t been good looking, if it were not for its orange berries. The leaves are very small and its white flowers very insignificant. After flowering, it produces these orange berries which keep the plant in an interesting phase for several months. As it has a very shallow root system it should be potted in a shallow pot, which contains very porous compost.
It requires some humidity but it should not be mist sprayed since will cause the leaves to rot. Protect from direct sunshine and winter frost.
Propagate by division in spring.
Remove berries when these have died.
