Alocasia 'Zebrina'


Unlike other types of Alocasia where the ornamental beauty is focused on the foliage, this one however the beauty is very much directed on the stem - the banded appearance on the stem seemed to create the hype one time ago as trending plant and may fetch easily RM150-RM300 one time ago, not have reduced to RM75.00 - RM50.00 in the plant size range.

Though is it now not highly sought after, it is still a desirable plant where Alocasia die-hard fans can now own these types of plant in more of an affordable price range. 


I can say that it appears to be a hardy and fast growing plant, I have not explored the full potential of this plant in exposing it to daily watering and strong feeding regime. 
There are however few varieties of these kind where the banded stem features are very much evident in few different types of Alocasia. This one however were one of the few that have been cultivated as the ornamental house plant - though not so popular like the "Jewel Alocasia" category.

The foliage appears to be glossy when newly unfurled and slowly turn dark green with sturdy firm texture without any fold or coloration. There are few other collectible Alocasia which have this similar characteristics of this foliage without the unique banded stripped features on the stem.

I must say there are easily a huge variety and now with many cultivated hybrids that are circulated among collectors and plant enthusiast together with breeds and plants vendors alike.

When it comes to light, watering, medium, feeding and pest control - it appears to be very much similar basic care and maintenance for all Alocasia species.
