4" Alocasia Nobilis
Bright indirect light
Water when soil is mostly dry
Alocasia Nobilis is a cultivar of Alocasia sanderiana. The main difference between these two plants is that Alocasia Nobilis has deeply lobed and wavy leaves. This plant can grow up to 6 feet tall in the right environment, but inside of your home it will likely grow to about 3 feet.
This unique indoor plant is easy to care for and will be sure to be a conversation starter of any room that it is in.
Alocasia Nobilis care:
Alocasia Nobilis prefers a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Allow your Alocasia to dry out almost completely between watering, taking care to not allow it to sit in excess water. Provide it with medium to bright indirect light for optimal growth.
Alocasia is a genus of plants in the Aroid family native to many parts of Asia including but not limited to Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Australia.
There are at least 90 officially recognized Alocasia species, with more discovered and properly named every year. Alocasia come in all sizes, from small to large. Jewel types like Black Velvet tend to stay on the bushier, more compact side.
Alocasia are rhizomatous or tuberous and self reproduce from corms.
Alocasia can go dormant during the cooler months, so try to provide your plant with temperatures above 50deg to ensure that they stay happy and healthy during this period.
She came in stunning condition. I have no reported she looked so happy. As corm sprouted me leaves and thankfully when it dropped a leaf from the move it was one of the tiny ones so she still looks very happy. I WILL be back for more. Maybe a string of frogs this time 😍
Beautiful healthy plant arrived in great shape.
