4" Alocasia Imperial Red


We have run out of stock for this item.

Imperial Red's gigantic, green, heart leaves are lifted on glowing magenta stalks, turning their faces to the light. Airy and shapely, it will reach 4' indoors. Alocasias are distantly related to Colocasias, some of which can live in watery places and the Taro plant eaten in Hawaii, but Alocasias are solely decorative plants, differentiated by foliage that points up while the Colocasias point down. These guys are hungry and benefit from regular feeding.

  • Toxic: All parts of plant are toxic. Keep away from children and pets.

  • Difficulty - Medium (3):  Not too difficult to keep happy, but does require some attention.
