Alocasia macrorrhiza Albo Variegata
Alocasia macrorrhiza Albo Variegata is quickly becoming one of the most desirable rare plants!
This plant is a true work of art! The variegation is breathtaking; every leaf is unique and nature's individual art piece.
The Alocasia macrorrhiza variegata is a dwarf Alocasia that can grow up to approximately 3 feet. It thrives in bright shade, do not place it in direct sun, or it can turn the white variegation brown.
The Alocasia macrorrhiza will grow small baby pups that can be removed to share with plant friends or allowed to grow with your mother plant.
It's common for Alocasias to lose the outermost leaf and sometimes even two during transit, but no need to worry; a new leaf will quickly grow with the proper lighting.
Alocasias will sometimes go dormant after growing many leaves and blooming. Do not throw away the tuber, you will be pleasantly surprised with the beauty that will regrow again during the growing season.
When you repot, provide it to a chunky and airy potting mix; coco coir, perlite, orchid bark. Check our plant accessories for the ideal potting medium.
Keep in mind you should NOT repot right away; the plant needs to acclimate to your growing conditions, and many plants, including our Alocasia ,macrorrhiza variegata could grow in its nursery pot for a year at least unless it becomes extremely root bound.
Alocasias like moist soil but not wet. Give it humid temperatures (60%-80%) and do not expose it to extreme cold, or it may go dormant. To keep Alocasias pest-free, keep them healthy by watering on schedule when the potting medium dries out, keeping a humid environment, and fertilizing when needed (ideally summer through fall.)
