Alocasia also known as “Silver Dragon”, is a compact plant (unlike its bigger cousins), however, its leaves, with their contrasting blend of dark and light greens, are just as attractive. This is a smaller tropical elephant ear that grows best in warm, moist areas and does especially well indoors.

  • They grows best in bright, indirect light. Care also requires that the soil be free draining but hold some water. If you are growing this plant as a houseplant, half and half mix of potting soil and orchid soil or perlite will provide the kind of soil anthuriums prefer.
