She's a rare Alocasia that we don't get in often! She looks as though she's been taken off the back of a mythical, fire-breathing creature, but we can assure you that yes, she is real!

Light: Like most Alocasia's, she prefers a spot with bright, indirect sunlight. 

Water: Keep her oil evenly moist (not soggy). You should check on her weekly by sticking a finger in her soil and if it comes out dry, it's time for a drink! Periods of long droughts will quickly slip her back into dormancy, thus causing stunted growth. 

She prefers lukewarm filtered water, however, if you can only provide lukewarm tap water, that's totally fine, just let it sit for up to 24 hours before using it. This will help to remove some of the chlorine and other chemicals this plant doesn't like. 

She also likes high humidity, to get trigger happy with your mister. 

Food: Feed her once a month between March and September with organic plant food. 

Height: She's slow-growing but can eventually reach heights of 60cm. Send us a pic if you've managed to succeed to this height.

PM tip:  Don't be startled in winter months for her leaves to die back - just cut them off at the base when this happens. Avoid putting her near any cold draughts or hot radiators. 

Toxicity: As with many houseplants, her leaves can be toxic if ingested.
