The Iridescent 'Mirror' plant!

Luminous and irridescent Alocasia with a variety of metallic deep red and green leaves that seem to change form when approached from different angles.

To date, Iridescent plants have only been found in the lower canopy of Asian rainforests and a handful of other locations, which makes this Alocasia an extremely rare and fantastic variety, as well as a unique find for plant enthusiasts!

  • Plants at the bottom of these dense tropical forests get a tiny fraction of the light above the canopy. To cope, these special plants have adapted to reflect light, allowing them to bounce the sunlight between their leaves.
  • Lovely outwards grow to create relaxed jungly environments.
  • Alocasias broad leaves make them great air purifying plants, as part of their photosynthesis, they filter our VOCs and COs indoors in big amounts.
  • Looking to purify your complete home with your own Alocasia Collection? Find them all here.

Enhance the sensation of being in an exotic jungle and connect to nature … at home! Choose between all sizes and varieties, we deliver them all safely to your door.

Care Instructions

Light

Prefers a spot with indirect light. Please keep far away from direct sunlight as it will scorch and fade my leaves

Temperature

Not too fussy but prefers a room temperature between 16-24 C

Feeding

Half strength fertiliser every couple of weeks between March and September. Never feed during winter as too much salt will accumulate in the soil and may burn leaves

Toxicity

Poisonous if ingested, keep away from nibbly pets and kids

Grooming

Cut off any withered or sunburned leaves and wipe with a damp cloth to remove dust
