4" Alocasia cuprea 'Red Secret'


 Bright indirect light

 Water when soil is mostly dry

 Loves humidity


Alocasia cuprea 'Red Secret' is a very sought after, striking species of Alocasia.

As this elephant ear matures, the leaves take on a copper tone.  The more mature leaves start to ripple and honestly, we think they look like little brains. 

Caring for your new Alocasia cuprea is fairly simple.  Ensure that your plant is in a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter.  Alocasia don't like to sit in water, so make sure to allow your plant to dry out between watering.

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.

I’ve had my Cuprea since September. Arrived in beautiful condition. Very healthy plant that has thrived since arrival. Canopy probably has the best price I’ve found on these and you get a good sized plant. Highly recommend.

Plant has been doing well once I got the lighting right it did stretch out a bit because of the incorrect lighting, but it has 2 new leaves. Very pretty a wishlist plant I can take off my list. Get this plant as soon as you can.
