Like many Alocasia species, their stand-out feature is their stunning heart-shaped, thick foliage. The light silver-green shade of the leaves and the highly textured dark green venation set the silver dragon apart. Plus, it's relatively compact, so it's ideal for making a big impact in a small space. They'll be perfectly at home in a bathroom with their love for humidity.
Light: These beautiful plants require bright, indirect light.
Watering: Try to keep the soil evenly moist. Over-watering, wet leaves, and soggy soil makes an alocasia plant susceptible to a variety of serious fungal infections. Check the soil frequently until you are sure of the plant's watering needs. Alocasia plants require less water during the winter when it's dormant.
Alocasia plants are toxic to pets. Typically, ingestion will result in swelling of the lips and tongue, and stomach irritation with possible vomiting.
