This rare Alocasia Cuprea “Red Secret” has extraordinary foliage that has a metallic shine to it. It is an exceptionally decorative plant! Its red-like leaves with dark almost black markings look fabulous and dramatic.
Native to subtropical Asia and Australia, this plant appreciates a bright and humid environment in the home or office.
Though it likes bright light, the leaves can be sensitive to sunburn so it's best to keep it slightly away from the window or behind a light curtain. Frequent waterings, plenty of light, and added humidity will keep your Alocasia looking its best.
Light: Bright indirect sunlight, avoid direct sunlight as it may scorch the leaves.
Water: Keep the compost moist through the summer months, but be careful to not overwater your plant as it can lead to root rot. During winter, reduce the water regime by half. Alocasias appreciate the moist environment, so mist around your plant often and avoid water sitting on the leaves as it can scorch it when exposed to sunlight.
Not edible. Toxic if accidentally ingested.
