Alocasia amazonica 'Bambino' is a dwarf variety of the already relatively small Alocasia amazonica. This little plant wont get much larger than a 12" tall, so if you love the lush look of giant Alocasia but live in a small apartment this is the perfect plant for you. Alocasia can oftentimes be intimidating plants to keep, but we think they're so beautiful they're worth the challenge!
Place in pot with drainage hole. Keep soil moderately moist, but not soggy.
Bright indirect light. Avoid direct sun.
Alocasias do best in high humidity, and warm temperatures. Avoid drafty spots, and provide extra humidity if needed. If all leaves begin to die off in a short period, the plant may be going dormant (especially in climates with cold winters).
