Alocasia Bambino Arrow
Alocasia Bambino Arrow, Jewel Alocasia
Partial / Bright indirect light
Alocasia Bambino Arrow has a very similar appearance to Alocasia Amazonica, but is smaller. This tropical beauty has varied and attractive leaves with an exotic appearance. The leaf blades are typically 15-18cm long and about 5cm wide with a dark purple underside.
This is a compact Alocasia ideal for table tops and shelves as it does not get as big as the standard Alocasia Amazonica. It is an exceptionally decorative plant and a real must for all plant lovers!
It’s a hybrid that has become a fairly popular ornamental houseplant. A striking and beautiful houseplant, it is defined by its arrow-shaped, dark green leaves with silver markings and have wavy edge. It is a fleshy evergreen that grows from underground corms. These plants rarely bloom, however, and are grown primarily for their foliage.
Alocasia is a genus of broad-leaved rhizomatous or tuberous perennial flowering plants from the family Araceae. There are 79 species native to tropical and subtropical Asia to Eastern Australia and widely cultivated elsewhere.
