Properties and uses:
This Alocasia has a remarkable, extremely dark green foliage with metallic glints and silvery veins.

However, avoid placing in on a porous support as its leaves have the tendency to produce water drops.

Looking after advice:

The Alocasia thrives in an extremely humid atmosphere.
- Therefore you will have to keep the earth ball humid, without letting water stand in the saucer.
- It also likes water sprayed on its foliage.
- Give it a liquid fertiliser (half a dose) every fortnight from March to September.
- Re-pot your Alocacia every two years in a mix of peat, heath-peat and peat moss (Sphagnum moss).
