Alocasia Stingray


-

Unlike many varieties, which require some maturation to manifest their trademark colors or shape, the Stingray Alocasia makes its character known early on. Even the leaves on a young plant truly appear like a stingray! Their distinctive tails, especially paired with heart-shaped leaves resembling pectoral fins, relate this Alocasia to the breathtaking sea creatures. Mature Stingray Alocasias are incredibly beautiful and defined and can reach 3-4 feet in height indoors, making them a perfect anchor piece. (Outdoors, these can reach an impressive 15 feet in height!) Your Alocasia may go dormant in the fall and winter seasons—do not be alarmed if its leaves look faint as the seasons change. Just keep it in a warm, humid space, reduce watering, and do not fertilize. Spring time will bring the plant’s revival and new growth, so long as its core has been kept healthy.
