This plant has iridescent leaves which look like they are forged from hammered copper.
Natural habitat and growing conditions:
Native to Borneo plant life, this highly-sought-after foliage plant requires bright light (but never direct sunlight), constant warmth and humidity, and regular water.
Notes of interest:
- The deeply-ridged leaves combined with the iridescent copper color ensures that each leaf looks different as you change your viewing angle. The leaves are purple on the underside.
- This particular specimen (along with many other plants) is grown underneath a canopy of miracle fruit trees in our grow room, 4-6 feet away from the Black Dog LED grow lights, again demonstrating the sheer penetration power of our LED lights.
- All parts of the plant contain calcium oxalate, an irritant which can cause swelling of the throat.
