This Alocasia is actually a new, undescribed species, just being sold as Alocasia sp. 'Platinum' until it has received its official species name! Very limited batch that we may not see again for a while!
Alocasias come in a wide range of shapes & sizes from small statured Jewel Alocasias to leafy giants, but care is relatively the same for all plants in this genus!
~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!
