Colocasia Redemption care:
This plant prefers a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Allow your Colocasia to dry out about 3/4 of the way before watering, taking care to not allow it to sit in excess water for a long period. Colocasia aren't extremely picky when it comes to sitting in water, but it's best to allow the water to drain first. Provide your new Colocasia plant with plenty of bright indirect light.
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.
Much bigger than expected. It's mature colors were already coming through. Couldn't be happier.
Nice large plant with a good price.
