The Alocasia Lauterbachiana is the perfect plant if you are loving the look of the large leaved beauties at the moment. The Lauterbachiana has quite sturdy stems which support an upright leaf structure. Its leaves are a beautiful dark-green colour with a deep-purple underside. Its narrow shaped leaves are decorated with scalloped wave which run down the edges and subtle lines of raised veins across the leaf face.
Try to keep the soil evenly moist,but well-drained soil of moderate fertility in partial shade.Over-watering, wet leaves, and soggy soil makes an alocasia plant susceptible to a variety of serious fungal infections.
Provide high humidity, ample water, and fertilizer every 2 to 3 weeks during the growing season.
Alocasia plants require less water during the winter when it's dormant.
