Alocasia Zebrina 'Tigrina'78236971
Botanical name - Alocasia zebrina x hybrid 'Tigrina'
Common name - Alocasia zebrina 'Tigrina'
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'. Alocasia zebrina 'Tigrina' is a rare, sought after hybrid native to the Philippines, with an airy stem featuring zebra stripes and lush green foliage. The petioles on this hybrid are also stripy and the leaves are narrower than a regular zebrina.
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. Possibly a 'Superba', but unable to determine yet due to immaturity. Known for it's distinctive sharp edged leaves.
