The Natal Mahogany is a little known but well-adapted tree for indoor living. It has handsome deep green shiny foliage and a bushy full appearance with a super forgiving nature.

These beautiful houseplants are best of all: locals and are natives to KZN where they grow in warm humid conditions, and the soil stays consistently moist, perfect for those of us who tend to overwater, however, they can withstand short bouts of dryness. The Natal Mahogany houseplant also adapts well to a variety of lighting conditions and does quite well in medium to low lighting areas, perfect for that lifeless dark corner in your home or office space.

These beauties pair well with a palm leaf basket adding to their subtle African elegance and will add a touch of tropical charm to your indoor decor.

A definite must-have indoor tree!

Please note: Natal Mahogany are considered poisonous and should be kept out of reach of hungry pets and humans.

Follow these instructions to keep your Natal Mahogany happy & healthy.

Light: Thrives in bright indirect light but adapts well to medium-low lighting conditions.
Water: Natal Mahogany plants thrive on water and do not mind over-watering. These plants prefer their soil to be consistently moist, but not soggy, consistently. Place a saucer under a Natal Mahogany plant to hold extra water.
