The Alocasia Watsoniana is a GIANT of the Jewel Alocasia. In the past Watsoniana was only seen in botanical gardens or private collections. The leaves are like silvery-veined shields with very dark red-purple undersides. Once this species gets growing it becomes the king of the Jewel Alocasias. It prefers bright indirect sunlight, a well-draining soil mix, and only requires water when the top 1 to 3cm of the soil is dry.
This plant does best in warmer temperatures and likes higher humidity and is ideal for any indoor or greenhouse collection.
They prefer shady moist well-drained soils. Grows well in amongst ferns and other shade loving plants. Great container plant. Known to be poisonous if eaten. Water well during the warmer months and keep drier in winter.
