Alocasia baginda 'Silver Dragon'
Alocasia baginda 'Silver Dragon' is one of the so-called "Jewel Alocasias," and we count ourselves extremely lucky to have a small number of these special plants available. These compact plants are prized for their beautifully textured, peltate leaves with a silvery-green hue. The undersides have striking venation! Not for beginners, this plant is known to require precise care, but will reward the collector with its mesmerizing foliage.
• Light: Bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feel dry
• Considerations: Use a well-draining, chunky soil mix to promote air circulation to roots. Alocasia need warm temperatures and high humidity. It's common for these plants to drop leaves; don't worry! They can fully grow back from their corms.
