An impressive plant with unique large leaves which resemble the wings and tail of its namesake. Alocasia is a member of the Arum family and is native to tropical Asia to Eastern Australia.
Allow the soil to dry out almost completely before re-watering. Mist regularly. Prefers bright indirect light and keep above 16C. It is not uncommon for Alocasias to lose an old leaf when a new leaf grows; avoid cutting back for this reason. Feed fortnightly from April to September. Mist to increase humidity.
