Alocasia-Silver-Dragom P1-H25cm Approximately.
Alocasia belongs to the Araceae family and is endemic to Borneo. ‘Silver Dragon’ is a cultivar that resembles Alocasia ‘Melo’ in that the leaves are rigid and coriaceous, with nearly entirely peltate leaf blades and light green petioles.
The genus name is derived from the Greek words a, which means “without,” and alocasia, which means “lotus root.” The specific epithet is classical Malay for ‘His Majesty.’
Water: Alocasia needs equally wet soil, so water after the top inch of mix has dried up, assuming the plant receives adequate light. Before watering, aerate the potting mix with a few pokes with a skewer or blunt stick, then carefully pour water over the top and allow it to travel through the drainage holes.
