Alocasia Dragon Scale60034091
Botanical name - Alocasia baginda 'Dragon scale'
Common name - Alocasia Dragon scale
Plant info - Native to the tropical rainforests of Southern Asia, Alocasias are fantastic foliage plants grown for their glossy heart shaped leaves and often referred to as 'Elephant's Ears'. This stunning cultivar is a low growing Alocasia featuring dark green scale-like leaves with a ribbed texture.
Plant care - Alocasias thrive in a well draining soil, in bright indirect light, indoors, outdoor shade, balconies and courtyards, protected from direct sun on the leaves. Make sure to give it a good drench when it's almost dry. Feed your Alocasia every 2-3 weeks through Spring and Summer with a good quality liquid fertiliser and watch her grow! It won’t need to be watered as often through the cooler months, and hold off the fertiliser then too.
Growing in a 100 mm pot, this guy stays compact compared to the larger sized Alocasia.
