Alocasia Metalhead is a hybrid Alocasia variety whose name speaks to its striking metallic leaves and general gothic flair. Its deep maroon stems are an attractive contrast to its unusual foliage. In the right conditions, this plant can grow 4'-6' tall, and spread out laterally almost as wide as it is tall.
Light: These plants thrive in bright indirect light, but avoid direct sun, as the intense rays can burn their tender leaves. Be sure to rotate your plant regularly to ensure it grows evenly, as these are infamous for distorting their shape by reaching towards the light.
Water: These plants enjoy evenly moist soil, but do not like to be soggy. Water once the soil is dry about one to two inches down in its container.
Humidity: Moderate to high humidity is best for this variety. We recommend adding a humidifier to your plant care routine or placing it on a pebble tray to help provide humidity if your space is dry.
If ingested, poisonous to people and pets.
