Those stems! A handsome, elegantly venomous-looking plant. Unique to the island of Luzon in the Philippines.Â
A denizen of the shady forest floor, the leafy arrows will turn to follow and capture the light. You'll never catch it in the act, but these plants will rotate themselves to face your window...eerie, dramatic, and a must-have for Alocasia collectorsKnown as a bit of a Diva. It won't take kindly to dry roots: water little and often to maintain a moist (but never wet!) substrate. Allow excess water to drain freely, and position the plant in a warm spot away from draughts.
Consistency is the name of the game, here. Get the light, temperature and watering just so and youâ"ll have a handsome specimen that will grow steadily into a grand and dramatic centrepiece.
