Alocasia Pink Dragon 4"
The Alocasia Pink Dragon is an attractive alocasia variety that is distinguished by its shiny dark green leaves and light pink stems. While this aroid can flower in the spring and summer months, its blooms are relatively insignificant compared to its magnificent foliage. This Alocasia is native to Southeast Asia and Australia where it grows naturally in the tropical forest understory, but thanks to its unique appearance it has gained popularity as a houseplant too.
Like all Alocasias, the Pink Dragon is particular about its growing conditions which has earned it the reputation of being difficult to grow indoors. However, given the right conditions, this plant can actually be pretty low-maintenance. Pet owners should be aware that the Alocasia Pink Dragon is considered toxic to pets if ingested so take care with this plant around your furry friends.
- Light: Like most tropical houseplants, several hours of bright indirect light is best for the Alocasia Pink Dragon.
- This Alocasia should be watered once the top one to two inches of soil is dry. It appreciates consistently moist soil but is sensitive to overwatering, so be careful not to drown the plant. Always ensure that you allow the excess water to drain from the pot after each watering to prevent waterlogged soil, which can lead to root rot.
