The Pink Dragon is a bright, bubbly addition to any Alocasia collection! With her broad green leaves, icy tips and silver veins she's already a stunner, but her real double-take point is her cotton candy and bubblegum pink stems. The underside of the leaf is a striking burgundy, that can grow to as large as 50cm.

Care

LightYour Alocasia Pink Dragon will thrive in a spot with bright, indirect, filtered light. Never allow this plant to stand in the direct sunlight—the leaves will burn. 

Water: Allow the top two inches of soil to dry before watering, do not let sit in excess water as they are quite prone to root rot.

Temperature/Humidity: Your Alocasia enjoys the warmth, preferably between 65-85 degrees, so maintain indoor temperatures above 60 degrees. Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes. A minimum of 40% humidity is suggested to prevent foliage issues, but your Alocasia will thrive best in 60% to 75% humidity.

Soil/Potting: These babies prefer to be root bound and repotting can be quite traumatic for them. We prefer to use a coarse, free draining soil and typically mix two parts each of perlite and orchid bark to one part potting soil. Feed monthly with a balanced fertilizer.

Care Tips: Humidity and a consistent watering schedule will keep this beauty's sensitive leaves from curling and browning. He is prone to sunburn when offered direct sun, experiment with the Black Velvet's location to find a good balance . Prone to Fungus Gnats and Spider Mites.

*Alocasias are mildly toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting. Do not ingest.*
