19cm pot - fits decorative outer pot 21-24cm  


The 'purple sword' alocasia has long, spear-shaped scalloped leaves, and a purpley hue. Like other species of elephant ears, the new leaves split out from existing stalks.

Light: A bright room, but indirect sunlight. Brighter light will earn you larger leaves.
Water: Alocasias hate wet feet, but they hate to dry out, too -- you'll see the stalks droop if it gets too thirsty. Give it a relatively small amount of water every few days, perhaps a cup, as soon as the top inch of compost feels dry, and then let drain.
Humidity: Likes a moist environment - a bathroom is ideal, otherwise misting often will be just as good. 
Temperature: This plant hates a draft, and needs to be kept warm at all times -- never let it be in a room below 10C.
