Alocasia princeps 'Purple Cloak' has distinctive V-shaped, dark green leaves with deep purple-red undersides and plum purple, sandpapery petioles. Grows best in full to part shade, keep soil consistently moist.
~Do Not let Alocasia sit in excess water. Alocasia are prone to rot if left with “wet feet”. Once watered, make sure to drain any extra water.
~Do Not place in full sun. Though some larger varieties can be acclimated to full sun, our Alocasia have been grown under shaded, greenhouse conditions.
~Alocasia are rhizomatous, meaning as they grow they will produce offshoots on short stems at or below the soil line. If you see bulb-like balls [known as corms] in the pot, Do Not remove them as these will grow to become new Alocasia!
