4” Alocasia Dragons Breath
Bright indirect light
Water when soil is mostly dry
Alocasia Dragons Breath is an uncommon elephant ear variety that sports elongated leaves with a silvery blue hue. The leaf sinus is dramatic and well defined.
Once mature, the leaves will get quite large -- some can grow as long as 2-3 feet!
Caring for your new Alocasia is relatively simple as Alocasia Dragons Breath prefers a well draining soil rich in organic matter. Allow your plant to dry out between watering to ensure that it remains happy and healthy. Give it bright indirect light.
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 Alocasia arrived in great condition, fast shipping, great quality.
I love this plant. This is my second time ordering this specific alocasia from this shop. The leaves are stunning! The dragons breath arrived exactly as advertised and I was very happy with my purchase.
My Dragon's Breath came wrapped neatly and securely. It is currently living in my grown tent and is thriving. It has recently given me a new leaf! I am very happy with my experience with Canopy, so much so I have just made two more purchases!
My alocasia dragon's breath arrived in nearly pristine condition. It adjusted very quickly from greenhouse conditions to home conditions (no cabinet with a humidifier kept around 55%). It also was transitioned to lecuza pon seamlessly. Highly recommend this alocasia!!!
Very nice plant!
