Alocasia macrorrhizos -SMALL
This is the smaller version of the large
This one is a stunning member of the elephant ear family, with heavily variegated foliage, of white and pale green. It is also referred to as Alocasia macrorrhizos (also 'macrorrhiza') 'Variegata', or 'Variegata alba’.
In tropical climates, this one is a very fast grower, with leaves reaching a maximum length of up to 1 metre. This is not the case in the southern States of Australia, and grows at a much slower rate. If being grown in these conditions or indoors, it may die down to its bulb but will reshoot once the weather warms.
Each plant measures approx 15cm in height from soil level.
A bit on the thristy side, this plant likes well drained soil with regular watering.
For WA, NT and Tas customers, an additional fee of $10 per order is applicable due to the requirements associated with quarantine compliance, including chemical treatment. Separate and additional costs are also charged by respective Departments of Biosecurity in WA, Tas and NT to inspect these plants upon their arrival. For more information on this, please check out the information on the FAQ section on this website and/or contact us direct.
