Alocasia cuprea - red secret alocasia

APPEARANCE: Exotic foliage plant from the tropical rainforest jungles of Borneo, with huge heart-shaped quilted-looking leaves up to 60cm long. They leaves are metallic silvery-green-copper on top, plum beneath.
USES: Houseplant in a warm humid room. Suited to shady underplanting in tropical gardens. Impressing your friends who haven't got one. Wowing your IG followers.
PLANTING: Plant in semi-shade or filtered light. Will grow in deep shade, more slowly. Alocasia plants thrive in free draining soil and warm humid air, check that pots have good drainage. Plants indoors should be placed on a washable surface or mat as the plant's leaves can drip from the tip.
CARE: Water regularly during the first 12 weeks or until the plant is established. Apply liquid fertiliser at half rate every 4 weeks for best results. Remove dead leaves for a quick tidy up. Regular light watering and a daily spritz with rainwater for indoor plants will keep them looking lush. Foliage may die back during the cooler months when plants become dormant. Avoid feeding and heavy watering again until plants develop new leaves. Repot during spring only if plants become rootbound, this is the ideal time to remove and repot any young shoots which have sprouted. Protect from frost and cold draughts.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 30-45cm H x 30cm W.
YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide. Your plants may be shipped as "plugs" (see photo), ready to plant up or pot on.
