Foliage in February

My ZZ Plant has started flowering. You can see the flowers at the base of the plant. I always thought that the Zamia was related to the Cycas, but it turns out that it is really a cousin of the Aglaonema. The ZZ plant is drought resistant as it can hold water in its base.
Aglaonema and Alocasia metallica make good companions. The Alocasia metallica has started sprouting all over my garden now.

The Rex Begonias have beautiful designs and colours.

The Never-never Plant has three colours in its foliage.

The Aluminium Plant glows with a silvery sheen. It needs plenty of water.
