Adelonema pallidinervium is a rare aroid part of the family of Araceae.
The genus Adelonema is distinguished by crushed vegetative tissues smelling of anise, and chartaceous often variegated leaf blades.
A. pallidinervium has striking patterned leaf showing silvery colored veins.
These plants prefer low light conditions. They do not tolerate direct sunlight, as it threatens to burn leaves. But for variegated forms, in order not to lose the decorative pattern of leaves, bright diffused light is necessary. The optimum temperature for growth is 20-25 °C. This species requires high humidity. In dry air, the leaves are deformed, poorly unfolded, their tops and edges dry out. But they don't like to be sprayed, as this will result in fungal infections on the leaves.
This plant is a slow grower and will require some extra care, but it will give a striking addition to a plant interior.
