- Johannesteijsmannia magnifica
Very rare species
Similar in most respects to Johannesteijsmannia altifrons but, if anything, even more spectacular. J. magnifica has large, simple, undivided leaves that can reach a length of more than 3 m (10 ft.) and a width of up to 2 m (7 ft.), rising directly from an underground rootstock. These huge, very leathery, roughly diamond-shaped leaves are strongly pleated along their length and have stunning, silvery white backs. The Silver Joey is native to rainforests in Malaysia. It will grow happily in a warm subtropical climate and, of course, anywhere in the tropics, in a shady, wind-protected situation. The peach pit-sized seeds are much sought after but rarely available. Germination usually is around 90%.
