This attractive Alocasia is a sought-after rarity, as its wild form is only found in the wild in the Northern Mindanao region of the Philippines and is threatened with extinction. As the wavy borders of its contrasting leaves resemble the shape of the Philippine Kris Sword, it is also called Kris Plant. It is somewhat more demanding to care for and is therefore more suitable for experienced plant collectors.
The product photos show examples of the plant. You will receive a specimen that matches the product photos in size, shape and colouring.
• Delivery: in 9cm pot

• Origin: Northern Mindanao region of the Philippines
