In another thread I commented that I'd never seen a plant with purple leaves, and got a list in return. Purpleinopp, this is going to drive me crazy now.
Now that I think of it, I did see a picture of this plant before - and thought it was photoshopped, because bright purple leaves like that are just not possible.
Most of what I've read online says that this is a high humidity plant and low humidity is a good way to kill it. One site says average indoor humidity is okay though. I'm in zone 9, Arizona... would misting be enough to counteract the low humidity here? Are these plants at all adaptable to different conditions? It would be indoors, with a grow light.
Someone on ebay is selling them, but I don't want to order something that has no chance of surviving here. Do you think it's a foregone conclusion, or worth a try?
