ALOCASIA PINK DRAGON
 

The glossy dark leaves and pink stems of the Alocasia Pink Dragon make it a real show stopper. They can be tricky in finding the right conditions for them but once you do they are pretty straight forward.

WATER 
Alocasia like consistently moist soil without being water logged, little and often is the best          way to do this.  Water until it just starts to trickle out of the holes at the bottom and ensure
there is no more left to drain before placing it back in it's cache pot.

 

LIGHT  
Your Pink Dragon will like lots of bright indirect light and they can tolerate a few hours of direct morning light.  Any more direct light than this will burn the leaves.
 

FERTILISING  
Feed twice a month with houseplant fertiliser during the Spring and Summer.
 

SOIL  
Alocasia needs a soil that retains moisture, but one that also allows air to get to the roots.  Visit our soil bar for coco coir and vermiculite and orchid bark to add to a standard soil mix to achieve this.
 

TEMPERATURE  
 Alocasia like to be warm, keep them away from cold draughts and try not to let them sit below 18C.
 

HUMIDITY  
Alocasia love humidity and the Pink Dragon is no exception.  Use a humidifier or a pebble tray to achieve this. Grouping plants together also helps with increasing humidity.
 

TOXICITY 
Alocasia are considered toxic to humans and animals.
