The Alocasia has beautiful heart shaped glossy green foliage with prominent veins on tall green stems.
Thrives in bright, well-lit conditions, however direct sunlight should be avoided as it will scorch the leaves. Alocasia do not benefit from shade, and will begin to suffer if light is too low.
The Alocasia's soil should be kept moist with warm water. Do not allow the soil to dry-out but be wary not to overwater. Little and often is a good approach.
