Plant Bio

Alocasia ‘Silver Dragon’

An outstanding elephant’s ear (Alocasia) from Borneo, this selection immediately caught our Plant Hunter’s eye both for its distinctive look and easy care requirements. Unlike many other elephant’s ear varieties, Silver Dragon stays small, making it ideal for well-lit desks and tabletops. Keep it happy by giving it warm, bright (preferably within 3 feet of a large, unobstructed east- or west-facing window) conditions with average to above-average relative humidity.

Note: This plant may have some natural degree of toxicity and may cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Additionally, exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact. Grown for ornamental purposes and not intended for human or animal consumption.
