Clusia rosea is an ornamental leafy houseplant that is remarkably sturdy and easy to care for. Its stiff, leathery leaves are a dark olive green in colour and are said to be so tough, you could carve your name into them – hence the popular name 'Autograph Tree'. The paddle-like leaves are also noted for their air filtering properties.
It is possible for Clusia rosea to produce lovely funnel shaped flowers that are relatively long lasting in delicate shades of creamy white with soft pink accents, however this only tends to happen in particularly warm and humid conditions.
Clusia rosea is also known as Pitch Apple, Copey, Scotch Attorney and Balsam Apple. It has a wide, spreading nature and is fast growing.
Merry and moist! To keep your Clusia rosea Princess happy, ensure the soil is moist at all times, but be careful not to overwater as this can lead to leaf discoloration.
Clusia rosea is fast growing and wide spreading. Trim once a year in spring to maintain your desired size and shape.
Let’s get steamy! The Clusia rosea Princess loves high humidity, so pop it in the bathroom to soak up that steam!
