Graptophyllum pictum orchid Chocolate Caricature Plant is a colorful, interesting, fast growing soft stemmed, tropical perennial. There are a number of different cultivars, but the classic and most popular is this one with chocolate bronze foliage that has an interesting creamy, pale pink, variegation that makes a striking contrast against the dark leaves.
The common name of Caricature comes from the interesting pictures that can be imagined when contemplating the pattern of the variegation. In the tropical landscape, the Chocolate Caricature plant makes a wonderful addition or background in mixed beds, as it will reach a mature height of around 6 feet fairly quickly, and requires little more than the most basic care. In colder zones it can be grown as an annual, a seasonal potted plant, or permanent houseplant.
The best placement for the Caricature is in very light shade. However it can be grown in full sun, but has high water requirements in that setting.
