Alocasia Lauterbachiana 'Purple Sword'

Alocasia Lauterbachiana 'Purple Sword' produces long and slender jagged leaves, as suggested by its name. This plant can reach a mature height of 4 feet in the wild, but only between 1 - 3 feet indoors. 


Water: water when the top inch or two of the soil is dry to the touch. Keep the soil moist but not overly saturated by watering often, but only a little at a time. This plant is prone to root rot. 

Light: prefers bright, indirect light. Keep away from direct light as it can burn the leaves. 

Humidity: requires high levels of humidity.

Temperature: performs best in 65 - 75 F.
