Like its name suggests, the aluminum plant looks like a plant that came straight out of a science fiction novel. Its leaves bear distinctive silver markings that make it seem almost as if the plant is partially made of metal. With just a little bit of love and the right growing conditions, this tropical plant can live for years and add a unique flare to your home. The plant goes well with almost any decor solution, thriving in pots, terrariums, hanging baskets and more.
This plant requires at least four hours of indirect, but bright, sunlight a day. Do not permit this plant to be exposed to overly bright or direct sunlight. Too much sun will burn the leaves and cause the green parts to turn brown.
he Aluminum plant needs to be watered differently during different times of the year. During spring and summer, the top quarter inch of the soil should be kept moist. During fall and winter, allow the top quarter inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Do not permit water to stand in the saucer underneath the plant.
This plant requires low maintenance.
