Are You Game?

Rule the plant kingdom with tropical Elephant's Ear (shown here). Its scalloped green leaves are beautifully marked with silvery white stripes, giving this plant a commanding presence.

Furry rhizomes make the Rabbit's Foot Fern an eye-catching accent. Put it in a hanging basket to show it off. You'll also want to hang up the Staghorn Fern for all to admire. One look at its big, antler-like fronds and you'll know where it got its name.

In the tropical rainforest, the Zebra Plant thrives in high humidity. Set it on a humidity tray and you'll help it thrive indoors. Striking foliage and bright yellow flower spikes make this Brazilian native spectacular in the home.
