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.

The silver dragon itself is beautiful - 4 or 5 leaves on it! Pistils always has healthy plants. However, what I am most amazed with is the pack job! It was so carefully and thoughtfully wrapped. Ive ordered plants from all over and this was top notch care like Ive never encountered! 100% recommend plants from pistils and if you are hesitant due to shipping, fear not!
