The otacanthus originates from the Brazilian rainforests. Because of the strong scent it gives off when its leaves are rubbed, it is also called the ‘floor polish plant’. Once the plant flowers, you can enjoy the deep blue/purple flowers for months on end. Did you forget to water the otacanthus one time? Then give it a drink of water, and the wilted plant will pick right up! It is highly suited as a houseplant, but also enjoys being on a terrace.
