Alocasia cuprea

  • Exquisite, sought-after houseplant, grown for its foliage.
  • Large, glossy, heart-shaped leaves are a deep copper-red colour with pronounced veining.
  • Collector plant; an amazing gift for a plant lover!

Care:

  • Light: Bright, indirect (north or east window). Leaves will scorch if exposed to hot afternoon sun.
  • Water: Allow the top 30% of soil to dry between watering. Avoid overwatering, or allowing the plant to remain dry for extended periods.
  • Fertilizer: Use an all-purpose fertilizer such as Schultz Indoor Plant Food (10-15-10) twice monthly.
  • Other tips: Grows best in an undersized pot. Use sharply-drained potting mix; we recommend Pro-Mix Tropical Plant Mix with extra perlite and small Orchiata added. Leaf margins may brown under very low humidity; mist frequently or use a humidifier if necessary. Plants may go dormant, dying back to the tuber; allow to rest for 8-12 weeks, then resume watering to encourage re-growth.

*Please note we do not ship live plants. All plants must be picked up in-store or curbside.
