Dragon Scale African Mask Plant - Alocasia - 2.5" Pot
Gift wrapping Options available
Alocasia Baginda (cuprea) Dragon Scale is an exceptionally decorative mini Elephant Ear plant. This is a great plant for terrariums and anywhere you need unusual foliage. It is a member of the “jewel alocasias” which include cuprea, reginula, and ‘silver dragon.
Alocasia are stunning members of the Elephant Ear family. It makes a wonderful addition to any tropical landscape and home. They may be container grown indoors or out, provided they have bright, but not direct sunlight. They grow to 8 - 12 inches tall and produce new shoots periodically, creating a dense cluster in no time. A 20-20-20 soluble is the best fertilizer for them, once per month. As with all elephant ears, they do not take well to cold weather and may die back to the soil line, but will come right back as soon as the temperature warms. If ground freezing in your area is common, we suggest keeping them in containers, in-ground and removing them when an overnight freeze is imminent. They do not like to dry out or be too wet, keep evenly moist, not wet or dry! Alocasia will live indefinitely in containers if proper care is given and is an excellent indoor plant!
