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.
