    A bold and imposing structural plant with huge reptilian-like silver-green leaves and dark-green veins, emerging from sturdy stalks. ‘Silver Dragon’ is a mesmerising Alocasia with leaves likened to dragon scales. Fabulous in the corner of a sitting room or hall, a touch of the exotic in your home!

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: This plant needs warmth and humidity. If you have a warm, light bathroom that could be perfect. Otherwise stand the pot on a tray of damp pebbles to try and keep the humidity levels up and/or mist regularly. Keep the temperature at a minimum of 16°C, warmer if possible. Water regularly in the summer, reducing through the winter, and feed with a liquid feed in spring/summer every 3-4 weeks.
  • Humans/Pets: TOXIC if eaten; skin/eye irritant
