Alocasia azlanii care:
This plant prefers a well draining soil rich in organic matter. Allow your plant to dry out between watering as they don't like to sit in water. Alocasia azlanii does best in bright indirect light but will tolerate lower light levels.
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.
The pictures don't do this plant justice...within the dark glossy foliage is purple veining and it's absolutely gorgeous. Sometimes I just stare at this plant in awe because it almost has an iridescent shift to it.
Another gorgeous alocasia with two new leaves 😍
So pretty and well packaged no damaged leaf
The plant arrived packaged so secure it was difficult to get out, and the heat pack was still warm. It is stunning, has five leaves and the biggest one is the size of my hand! It’s currently growing a new leaf, and it came with a sprouted corm!
Canopy always sends the best plants! I’ve never had an unhealthy or bug-ridden plant when ordering from them. Love that they restock consistently and send great sized plants for the price. Will continue to order from Canopy!
