Alocasia azlanii is a jewel type or miniature elephant ear species. The leaves on this plant are round and green with a purple backdrop. If you look closely the foliage has a slight glimmer to it!
Caring for your Alocasia azlanii is fairly simple! 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.
I've been wanting one of these for so long and had no idea where to order it from as no nurseries near me had them. I found y'all on Reddit with plenty of great reviews, so I took a chance and I'm so glad! It came packaged securely and with five healthy leaves! Thank you so much!
