4" Alocasia Bambino


 Bright indirect light

 Water when soil is mostly dry

 Loves humidity


Alocasia Bambino is a dwarf elephant ear species with elongated leaves from Southeast Asia.  While your Alocasia 'Bambino' will never grow as large as other elephant ears, this particular species has spectacular glossy foliage that demands attention.

Alocasia 'Bambino' is similar to Alocasia 'Polly' but it has smaller leaves.

We recommend allowing your Alocasia Bambino to dry out slightly between watering.  They prefer bright indirect light to ensure a healthy growing plant!

Additional information:

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.

Easy alocasia!

My bambino is not such a bambino anymore! I bought it back in May and have kept it outside in full shade. I’m impressed with how much it’s grown! I’ve already had to repot it in a larger pot. It’s a super cute addition to my alocasia collection. And just like all of my plants from canopy it’s always been super healthy!
