    Beautiful plant! The leaves are a dark greenish-black when viewed normally and the red stems have soft spikes. It’s a very intimidating looking plant. It can be difficult to view the blue iridescence at first, but what I do is shine my phone flashlight on the leaves and then shine at different angles until I can see the blue. It’s fascinating! The plant has put out three huge leaves in the few months that I’ve had it. I keep mine in a fairly shaded part of my house and water once or twice a week, depending on how the plant is looking. Leaves will droop and turn crispy brown on the tips if thirsty. Love love love this plant! Thank you Steve’s Leaves!
