The genus Alocasia is native to tropical rainforest climates. Bred in the 1950s by Salvadore Murano, this cultivar was produced by crossing two other Alocasia species: Alocasia watsoniana and Alocasia sanderiana.
- Pot size: 17cm
- Height and Spread: Up to H: 60cm (2ft) x W: 60cm (2ft)
- Soil: Use a well draining, aerated potting soil mix. A mixture of 1 part peat, 1 part perlite or coarse sand and 1 part soil is recommended.
- Position: Indirect sunlight
- All Alocasia is toxic to humans and pets if ingested.
Alocasia thrives well in high humidity and bright, indirect sunlight. Allow the top 3cm of soil to dry between watering; over-watering, wet leaves, and soggy soil makes the plant susceptible to a variety of serious fungal infections. Place on a saucer filled with pebbles to replicate the humid rainforest environment.
