Full description and specifications

Alocasia macrorrhiza 'Splash' (Variegata) is a spectacular ornamental plant, appreciated for its large and variegated leaves. This variety of Alocasia is known for its unique pattern of white and green spots, which creates a special visual effect in any interior space.

Main features:

  • Leaves: The leaves are large, heart-shaped, with smooth edges. The variegation consists of white and light green spots on a dark green background, offering a striking contrast.
  • Dimensions: The plant can reach heights of 1.5-2 meters in optimal growing conditions.
  • Stem: The stems are robust, green in color, supporting large and heavy leaves.

Growing conditions:

  • Light: I prefer strong indirect light, but it can also tolerate medium light. Direct exposure to the sun can cause burns on the leaves.
  • Soil: It needs a well-drained soil, rich in organic matter. A mixture of potting soil with perlite or sand is ideal.
  • Watering: Regular watering is recommended, keeping the soil slightly moist, but avoiding water stagnation. Watering should be reduced during the winter.
  • Humidity: Alocasia macrorrhiza 'Splash' prefers high humidity. Periodically spraying the leaves or using a humidifier can help maintain the optimal level of humidity.

Care:

  • Fertilization: Applying a balanced liquid fertilizer, once every two weeks, during the growth period (spring-summer) will stimulate healthy development.
  • Pruning: It is important to remove dead or damaged leaves to encourage new growth and prevent disease.
  • Common problems: May be susceptible to pests such as mites, aphids and aphids. Periodically check the plant and treat with insecticide if necessary.

Note: Alocasia is a sensitive plant. Therefore, it is possible to receive these plants with some defects on the leaves, but these do not affect the viability of the plant.
