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.

This was the perfect plant to add to my alocasia collection. It was shipped within 2 hours of ordering, and I got it the very next day. Customer service was a 10/10. This plant arrived in perfect condition. Canopy Plant Co really takes care of their plants. I highly recommend.
