If you love your leaves long, this is the plant for you! With scallop edging and a rich colour palette of dark greens and deep purple undertones, this plant cuts a striking silhouette. It comes from the popular Alocasia family and is a tropical plant, native to the rainforests of southeast Asia.
During cooler months Alocasia plants are known to hibernate, reducing the amount of energy they are expending, so just let them do their thing - they won't need as much water or fertilser.
This tropical plant loves humidity and loathes the cold, so keep it out of the way of any drafts. Its ideal temperature is 18-22 C. You could replicate its natural environment by placing in your bathroom.
