Alocasia Cuprea

(1 customer review)



If you love Elephant Ears like we do, then this rare copper variety is a must-have! Alocasia cuprea ‘Red Secret’ leaves can grow up to 2 ft long and take on a metallic shine under optimal conditions, making it a gorgeous statement piece for any room. Native to Sabah, Borneo, the leaves adapted to the low-light conditions of the tropical undergrowth by absorbing green light and reflecting red. Mature plant is 1-2 ft tall.

Care Tips for Alocasia cuprea ‘Red Secret’

Soil:  Cultured Sustainable Aroid Soil for Tropical Plants

Light: Bright, indirect light. Approximately 650-850 foot candles. Plants can take higher light levels as they mature.

Water: The soil should be allowed to dry slightly between watering. On a scale of 1-5 moisture levels should remain as close to a 3 as possible.

Humidity: Medium to high. Keep above 40%, with 70-80% humidity being ideal. If you live in an area with low humidity, add a humidity tray or mist several times a week.

Temperature: Plants grow best in temperatures from 70°-85° Fahrenheit range. During the cooler months when the temperatures fall below 65°F the plants will grow more slowly, and fertilization rates should be reduced.

Fertilizer: Use a dilution of 20-10-20 or 20-20-20 applied every other watering. Higher fertilizer levels may attract pests.

    The color on this one is fascinating, sometimes almost looks black depending on the light. Very unique and beautiful!
