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.


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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Alocasia are considered toxic to humans and animals.
