Plants for sale are Alocasia "Nigra" plants
Each plant I offer is Hybridized and grown from tissue cultures to be a disease free exact replica of the mother plant. Plants for sale are between 5-16" tall. Alocasia Nigra has wide leaves that are dark green on their surface and a metallic black color on the underside with edges that are ruffled and indented plants start out green and turn black with time. Plants reach 3-5' in height. Huge elephant-ear type leaves which normally point to the heavens add lots of focal impact in the tropical garden and summer patio containers; native to tropical S. and S.E. Asia, these great plants sway and 'sing' a special song in the warm, mid-late summer breezes; tall. We recommend using only Bio Spectrum organic fertilizer. Ships to the continental United States only.
