Alocasia Bambino Arrow
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 15-18 cm 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.
Dos and Don’ts after receiving the plant
