really is one of the most spectacular houseplants in the world. With bright white
veins protruding from a dark background the arrow shaped leaves can reach over
a foot in length! Will also flower throughout the year with strange yellow coloured
spathes sometimes followed by red berries. Perfect for a bright bathroom.
Not the easiest of plants but a must for the plant fanatic.
A bright position out of direct sunlight.
Keep warm minimum of 16C / 60F above 70 in summer will promote faster growth.
Keep well watered in summer and infrequently in winter. Humidity and heat are
the main requirement if you really want a happy Alocasia, mist as much as you
can and if possible place the container on a tray of wet pebbles/gravel.
A liquid feed every 3 weeks or so.
Only water with rain/bottled water. Tap water may kill it!
