Alocasia clypeolata 'Green Shield'
This is a medium-sized Alocasia with a beautifully contrasting leaf coloration. The leaf midrib and venation is a pronounced, deep-green, while the rest of the leaf is a vibrant, bright green.
Light: This plant enjoys bright-indirect light. Do not place in direct sunlight.
Water: Allow the top half of the potting mix to dry out between waterings, especially in the winter. Fertilise every other week during the growing season (not in winter).
Air: Prefers warmer air (15-29ºC) and higher humidity, so mist the foliage between waterings, sit the plant on a tray of watered pebbles or use a humidifier.
When repotting, use a well-draining houseplant potting mix, even adding some orchid bark or perlite to increase drainage.
Pot size: D13cm x H12cm Plant size: approximately W60cm x H50cm
