When I saw this broader-leafed version, I pounced at the chance to have that beauty indoors as well.
I wasn’t crazy about any of the pots they had in store and none of the spares we had really felt right. Then, I remembered the metallic silver spray paint in the garage that I had left over from another project (it’s Valspar Brilliant Metal from Lowe’s).
