$25.00

Alocasia Frydek (Alocasia micholitziana) also known as Alocasia Green Velvet, is a beautiful velvet elephant ear first discovered in Manila, Philippines. It has quickly become a favorite of the house plant community as well as collectors. The leaves are velvet and lush with high contrast of white veins vs the lush green foliage. 

Plants and pots sold separately.

Bright indirect light.

Water weekly, keeping the soil lightly moist, but not soggy. Water when the surface/top inch of the soil is dried out well.

No - Can cause mouth irritation and digestive reaction.

Native to the tropical area in the South Pacific Islands, particularly the Philippines, Alocasia plants appreciate the extra humidity a kitchen or bathroom can offer, if the spot is bright enough.

Maintain a regular watering schedule and keep the soil of your Alocasia moist, but not wet or saturated. This is not a drought-tolerant indoor plant, but it is relatively forgiving if you forget to water it from time to time. Extended periods of dryness can result in brown leaf tips or edges. Root rot will occur if the soil becomes soggy.
