I have grown the variety Brazil for many years. No two leaves are the same. A very attractive houseplant. Easy grower. Hadn't seen this plant for years and now it's making the commercial scene again!

According to the tag the plant came with, it's a fast-growing plant. While mine is growing fast, there's no trunk. It's just the foliage so far. Hopefully it'll start shooting up soon! Very pretty plant.
