Native to southeast Asia. Alocasia are fast growing tropical rainforest plants with large dramatic arrow-shaped foliage. In warm weather they can produce a leaf every week.

Makes a beautiful addition to any home or garden with its wild and tropical style. Prefers bright filtered light in a rich well drained soil or potting mix. May be grown in the garden in mixed tropical plantings or large pots. A good, thick winter mulch helps prevent rot caused by cold, damp soils.

A combination of slow release fertilisers and liquid feeding applications are ideal and will produce vibrant foliage.
