Please note, this item is either heavy or oversized, so has to be sent via our nationwide courier APC. Please do not choose the ‘Brighton and Hove’ delivery if you are not local, as your order will be refunded as the postage paid will not be enough. Many thanks! (ONLY APPLICABLE TO THE 19CM POT)

The Alocasia wentii is a wonderful large leaved Alocasia, a hybrid of Alocasia Ordora and Alocasia Gageana. The broad arrow shaped leaves are a glossy dark green, with a deep purple underside, a stunning feature that makes it a particularly desired houseplant which also explains its other common name, Purple Umbrella. Native to the rainforests of New Guinea.

RATING- Moderate

LOVES- Bright indirect light, high humidity, well-draining damp soil. Prefers to be slightly rootbound.

HATES- Dry soil, but also very prone to root rot, so ensure you don’t overwater either!

SIZES AVAILABLE: Pot diameter
-12cm
-19cm pot

Toxicity Rating- Toxic to pets & humans due to the presence of oxalic acid. The sap can cause dermatitis, so it can be useful to wear gloves when handling.
