Peacock Plant

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 3 April 2019 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Spotted at the Garfield Park Conservatory on February 2, 2019.
I love how the undersides of the leaves have a brown-green "reversed" look to them.

You are right! The undersides are more interesting than the tops.
Peacock plant varieties are staggeringly huge!
I guess it's fun to collect them too :)
I used to have some that looked like "fish bone".
