Alocasia baginda 'Dragon Scale' is prized for its stunning bullate leaves, velvety appearance, and distinct venation. The emerald green leaves of Alocasia 'Dragon Scale' turn even darker as they mature. Currently growing in a quart pot and pushing out new growth, this plant will be ready to bump up to a 1/2 gallon or gallon once received.
This is a must for any Aroid collection. Jewel Alocasia thrive in bright light indoors and part sun - shade outdoors. When growing inside supplemental light and humidity would be appreciated and encourage new, quicker growth. Grown outside Alocasia must be brought inside when temperatures drop below 55*. Provide chunky, quick-draining media, a standard 'Jungle' or 'Aroid' mix amended with a slow-release fertilizer or top-dressed with worm castings. Good drainage is essential to keeping Alocasia happy. Jewel Alocasia are far less tolerant of moist soil than the other thinner leaf varieties. It's best to error on the side of under vs. over watering with jewel Alocasia.
