Description

Are you into striking plants? Then this Alocasia Pink Dragon is thé plant for you. With its light pink stems and grayish leaves with striking veins, this will look great in your home! The young leaves of the Alocasia Pink Dragon will start green. After a while the leaves will turn into a darker green with it’s distinctive grey glow.

Alocasia are perhaps one of the most populair house plants at the moment. Many varieties we know as indoor plants are hybrids and propagated for their beautiful foliage, which makes these plants very exotic looking. They are all perfect plants for an indoor urban jungle. When you know how to take care of them, these are plants you can enjoy for a long time.

Taking care of the Alocasia Pink Dragon isn’t too difficult, but does need some attention. Alocasia are originally from the tropical areas of Southeast Azia. Therefor its best to keep the plant in a warm spot with high humidity. Don’t let full sun touch the leaves as this can burn those beautiful leaves. Indirect light is better as in their natural habitat Alocasia grown on the forest floor. Good drainage is key in taking care of an Alocasia. The soil needs to be slightly moist at all times. However if you overwater this plant will not be very happy with you. Placing the plant in a good aroid soil mixture is recommended. Thereby you have to make sure the excess water can flow away. If you are not sure if your Alocasia needs watering? Than perhaps looking for a moisture meter is an idea.

A common ‘issue’ when taking care of Alocasia are ‘drooping leaves’. When the leaves are hanging down it can mean a couple of thing. Ruling them out one by one can give the answer to your question.
Leaves can start hanging when the leaves get bigger and heavier. The stalks are relatively thin and when there is too much weight in the leaves they can start hanging. This is easily fixed by placing a little stick and secure it with a clip.
Another reason of drooping leaves can mean the plant is not getting enough water or light. Check the conditions and alter if needed. When fall kicks in days are getting shorter and there is less light. Moving the plant a bit more into the light can be a solution.
If all of this is not working it’s likely the plant needs a re-pot. When repotting always use new and fresh soil and a pot that’s about 20% larger than the original. This way the plant has enough space to grow.
