Alocasia is a member of the Arum family and grows in the tropical rainforests of South-East Asia. It’s particularly common on Borneo, and can reach a height of four metres.


For watering, allow the top 5cm to dry between watering to ensure the plant isn't sitting in soil that is too wet. During the winter, Alocasias will go through a dormancy period and will require less frequent waterings as the soil will take longer to dry.


Your Alocasia Rubra indoor planting should be well lit with bright, but diffuse light. Direct sunlight will burn the leaves.


This plant can be toxic to your cats and dogs if eaten. This is a great air purifiying plant.
