Hardly dumb, Daphne swept the nation by storm in the 1800's and has statistically been America's favorite houseplant ever since. She's easy to grow and loved for her vibrant leaves and tall, shrubby growth.
Low to bright indirect light. Direct light will burn her leaves.
Once a week. Soil can stay slightly moist.
Highly toxic if consumed.
Small: ~12" tall and a 4" pot. Medium: ~24" tall and a 6" pot.
Easy and beautiful, makes for a perfect gift.
Pro-tip: She's quite sensitive to cold temperatures. Consider a humidifier instead of misting her leaves.
