The growing behaviour of Alocasia’s are quite unique. Each new leaf your plant creates is split out of the stem of the last leaf it created, like a domino effect. You will notice that your plant is quite fast growing during spring and summer, it may require extra water during this period due to the increased effort of forming all those new leaves. Alocasia’s form their leaves as part of the stem, not at the end of the stem like most other varieties of plants. This creates those lovely long lines the Alocasia’s are known for, matching them perfectly to the tastes of modern or industrial home styling. The Lauterbachiana has a bold look, and when paired with a perfect pot, is going to be a stunning addition to your home.
Height is approx. 75cm.
Light: The Alocasia Lauterbachiana requires bright indirect sunlight which improves the leaf colour of your plant.
Water: Water using room temperature water, in smaller regular amountsm to achieve moist, but not soggy soil. Don’t let the soil dry out. The roots do not like to be left wet so ensure that your pot and soil have good drainage. Less water will be required over the winter months.
