Alocasia wentii sports oblong leaves with a purple tint to them. This species of elephant ear is known to be one of the hardiest Alocasia! They are tolerant of a large range of environmental conditions, from chilly temperatures to very hot -- Alocasia wentii does it all!
This Alocasia can grow pretty large, up to 8' tall! If kept as an indoor plant it will likely not reach this height.
To care for your Alocasia wentii, simply make sure it is in a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Allow your new plant to dry out between watering. These plants prefer bright indirect light so take care to avoid direct sunlight as this may burn the leaves.
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.
