Care

 Bright indirect light

 Water when soil is mostly dry

Alocasia Stingray is collected for its uniquely shaped foliage, from which it gets its name.  The leaves on this elephant ear species have a long and narrow tip which resembles the tail of a stingray.

Alocasia macrorrhiza Stingray can grow up to 10' if grown outside.  If kept as an indoor plant, Alocasia Stingray will be a manageable size.

Caring for your new plant is simple!  Alocasia Stingray prefer 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.  These plants do best in bright indirect light but will tolerate lower light levels.

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.

Stressed but healthy

I was hoping the stingray wouldn't stress due to the trip, but alocasias make their own mind up. None the less, the plant arrived healthy and is adjusting to its new environment with new leaf growth! Looking forward to ordering some of the other varieties in the near future :)
