Alocasia Morocco

Alocasia morocco

The Alocasia morocco is a cousin of the Alocasia amazonica and has much rounder leaves and colorful pink-purplish stalks. Easy-growing and approachable, maybe ask it on a date?

Low Maintenance

A ten day surf trip to Bali is still in the cards. Water before leaving and you're jet set.

Bright, Indirect Light

Providing the highest amount of light without direct exposure is ideal. No. Direct. Light.

Not Pet Friendly

It's not that they don't want to be friends, it's just if your pet eats it they're kinda screwed.

Also known as the African Mask Plant, the Alocasia Morocco is native to the tropics of Southeast Asia. It has beautiful dark, glossy green leaves with streaks of silver veins that rest on pink to dark purple stems.

They thrive with bright, filtered light, regular waterings, and high humidity. It's not as hard as you may think.

The Morocco will occasionally shed older leaves. Not to worry, you're doing great. Older growth is often discarded to divert energy for new growth. Misting this plant regularly will help it thrive.

Size will vary, but total height is about 14 inches and container width is 6 inches.

How to not kill me

Watering

Water once a week

If that's too hard then we suggest getting a pet rock. The Amazonica likes to be slightly damp, but not wet.

Sunlight

Bright and Indirect

Think bright, dappled light that streams through the classiest of sheer JC Penney curtains. The brighter the better, but direct sunlight will burn its leaves. Let's not do that.

Humidity

Slays in high humidity

It comes from the tropics so mist it frequently with a spray bottle, or use a humidifier to amp up the moisture in your space. It'll thank you by looking good and staying alive.
