We really love this foliage houseplant - it’s fabulous!
Originating in the humid, warm Philippine rainforests of Southeast Asia, the Alocasia Sarian is hybrid cross between Alocasia zebrina and Alocasia micholitziana and prized for its beautiful leaves and gorgeous stems. It will certainly make you feel as though you’ve just stepped into the rainforest!
It would look fabulous in the corner of a sitting room or hall, a touch of the exotic in your home!
Alocasia Sarian will need a really bright spot and love humidity; he will need to sit in a south-facing window in the winter and near a north-facing window in the summer.
If someone is lucky enough to be receiving this houseplant as a gift, we can include a free handwritten card with the delivery. Just include your gift message at the checkout basket stage - we won’t enclose paperwork with the delivery to keep the price secret!
