Alocasia are stunning tropicals plants with arrowhead-shaped leaves. Find a warm, bright area in your home for these beauties. Native to the tropical area in the South Pacific Islands, particularly the Philippines, Alocasia plants appreciate the extra humidity a kitchen or bathroom can offer. Alocasia have a dormant period where leaves will fade and die so do not be alarmed when this happens. During this period, the plants will require less water, so simply moisten the soil from time to time.
