I would like to know what type of plant Léon's plant is in Léon: The Professional. (Related: Question about what the story of Léon's plant is.)


1 Answer 1


It's an Aglaonema, or Chinese evergreen. Common indoor plant. Unfortunately, Mathilda planting it outside would kill it. These are tropical plants that don't hold up to the cold of NY where it is set. Of course, the movie is filmed mostly in Paris, which rarely gets below freezing.
