*Growers choice - the grower will select your plant*
Alocasia lauterbachiana is a beautiful ornamental houseplant because of its uniquely lance-shaped leaves and burgundy undersides. As this plant matures the burgundy will become deeper in colour. This is a larger growing alocasia as leaves can reach approximately two feet in length while the plant can reach 4 feet at maturity.
Provide bright indirect light for best aesthetic appearance, eastern or western exposure. Do not allow to sit in direct light as leaves as susceptible to burning. Allow to dry slightly between watering, do not over water to avoid rot. Alocasia do prefer higher humidity. It is recommended that you situate this plant close to a humidifier or provide supplemental mistings multiple times a day. Can be potted in an all purpose potting soil with perlite. Allow roots to fill the pot before re-potting and only increase pot one size at a time.
