Plant Bio

Alocasia tandurusa

Native to areas of Indonesia, Alocasia tandurusa is sometimes also called Alocasia Sulawesi and known by the common name Jacklyn. No matter what you call it, the plant is an absolute eye-catcher. The arrow-shaped leaves are deeply lobed, giving it a distinctive look. The emerald-green leaves are decorated in darker veins and have small hairs. Its botanical name is said to come from "tanduk rusa," which translates to deer antlers from Indonesian.

This tropical aroid grows best in bright light but tolerates medium light levels. It may struggle in low light and can suffer burn if it gets too much direct sun (particularly in Southern areas). As such, we recommend siting it within 2 to 3 feet of an unobstructed east- or west-facing window. It prefers average household temperatures and average humidity levels (40 percent or more is ideal). Water as the top couple of inches so of the potting mix dries to the touch. Avoid letting it dry out and keep it away from hot or cold drafts.

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.
