Alocasia Cuprea 'Red Secret'


Among all other Alocasia plants this one has a distinct appearance like a shield or 6 pack abs. that truly give an interesting look. This one is native to Borneo and also considered as a Jewel Alocasia. I find that this one is a slowly growing plant and only have 1-2 leaf in a singular plant.

Also commonly known as Mirror Plant. It has a bright green with coppery hues, lighter sunken veins with reddish undersides. I have come across 3 different varieties of this kind.

Just like most Jewel Alocasia - this one falls more on the sensitive type and so do take extra care on the watering regime as too much watering can cause this plant to rot and fall apart.
