Along the stems reddish brown to chocolate color flowers grow. Each flower has 4 long ribbon like petals which give it an exotic look!

The Piggyback plant is accustomed to moist woodlands and prefers to have excellent drainage with consistently moist soil. When the top two inches of soil feel dry to touch, it is time to lightly water your plant.
