The Phyllanthus Mirabilis reminds us that nature is truly a gift to us! It is love at first sight! The plant has a thick, tuberous stem out of which grow red-green, veiny leaves that fold up in the dark.
This plant is perfect for those who love the mysterious looks of a Bonsai, but with colors.
The Phyllanthus Mirabilis goes through periods of dormancy during the colder months but not to worry as its leaves will be back in spring. Simply put it in a cooler place and water it very sparingly, if at all, until spring when it will start growing again.
