The lollipop plant is a sub-tropical species producing small white flowers from a beautiful cone shaped bract. Taking care of it is fairly easy. It has basic needs of any plant, although it needs to be pruned regularly to keep it's size manageable.
While the P. lutea is not as popular as many other indoor plants, it really is a delightful plant to grow, with a long flowering season from spring until fall. Grown outdoors they can reach up to about 4 feet in height, and a few feet wide, which is why growers indoors really need to keep the plant pruned. While some growers find this plant easy to grow others struggle, however, problems seem to affect outdoor growers more than those indoors, which is caused by incorrect sunlight and temperature conditions, mainly.
