Dwarf Alocasia with leathery textured, green dragon scale like leaves with striking, dark venation as it matures. Consistent bright, indirect light will keep this Alocasia compact and full of foliage - the more light they receive the more water and nutrients they prefer.
Current Pot Size: 100mm
Origin: East Borneo
Synonyms: Elephant Ear Plant, Jewel Alocasia
Light: Category 3-4 (please see our blog on plant light requirements)
Soil: Indoor mix (please see our blog on soil requirements)
Fertiliser: As directed on your fertiliser of choice. Fortnightly or monthly during the growing season
Watering: Don't over water, they like to dry out between waterings.
Maintenance: Keep warm over winter to slow down/stop dormancy. If they experience temperatures of less than 15 Degrees Celsius consistently they will go dormant in which watering should be kept to a minimum (about once a month) until new growth emerges in Spring.
