Alocasia 'Silver Dragon'

4.5" Nursery Pot

We have run out of stock for this item.

Your newest Alocasia obsession! The Alocasia ‘Silver Dragon’ boasts thicker, more rigid leaves than it’s cousins but it’s most spectacular feature is it’s silver coloring. Under the right care, the leaves of this plant truly do begin to take on the look of Dragon’s skin. This is a thirsty plant, so if you want it to be able to support more than a few stalks you’ll need to make sure the soil stays evenly moist and that you’re able to maintain a balanced fertilization schedule. If LECA is your thing, the Alocasia is a great candidate for hydroponic growing!
