THIS BEAUTIFUL PLANT IS A WELCOME ADDITION TO ANY HOUSEHOLD WITH ITS IRIDESCENT SHIMMERING LEAVES AND WILL BE THE ENVY OF ALL WHO SEE IT.
IT IS EASY TO GROW AND LIKES LOTS OF INDIRECT SUNLIGHT. YOU CAN PUT OUTDOORS IN THE SUMMER, BUT INTRODUCE IT SLOWLY TO THE OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT. SOME INDIRECT SUN AND PARTIAL SHADE DURING THE HOT PART OF THE DAY.
