Thalia is a tall and elegant waterside plant from the Marantov family. It comes from warm regions and is therefore sensitive even to frost, but is ideal for tropical landscapes. In favorable conditions, it can reach a height of more than a meter. As it grows, it forms dense curtains. Leaves are large, up to 50-60 cm long, arranged on a long, thick stem. The appearance is very similar to that of canna leaves.
Blossoms from July to September in unusual purple, as if waxed flowers, collected in long inflorescences at the top of thin pedicels.
Like most aquatic plants, the waist feels best immersed in water by 30-40 cm. There should be 10 cm of water between the soil level and the top of the pot.
Location is sunny, the soil is nutritious based on compost and loam. In warm regions, to allow the plant to survive the winter, containers are placed at a depth of 60 cm and cover mulches. The frost-loving beauty cannot tolerate it, so the waist is transported to a cool and well-lit room for the winter. The ground part is cut off before wintering. It is multiplied by division of rhizomes.
