A rare species with very wide leaves having silver trichomes forming a solid coating over the entire leaf surface, hence giving its scientific specific name argyrophyllus meaning 'silver leaf.'  There are a couple of ridges apparent running the length of the leaves, but they are the same base color as the rest of the leaf.

***This species is prone to fungus spotting due to culture in a typical potting mix.  So for best results, we recommend growing this particular species in a dirty Turface® mix, equal parts peat based potting mix and Turface® All Sport.  Fill the bottom of your pot with a shallow layer of potting mix, this prevents the Turface® mix from running out the bottom of your pot, and the remainder with the dirty Turface® mix.
