Alocasia Jacklyn makes a great indoor tropical plant! In its natural habitat, it can grow up to 5' tall. As an indoor plant, you'll find that it stays a bit more compact only reaching about 3-4' in height.
Caring for your Alocasia Jacklyn is simple. Make sure your new plant is in a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Allow the plant 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 a happy, healthy plant.
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.
