Alocasia Dragon Scale

Alocasia Dragon Scale is a variety of Alocasia baginda that is native to the tropical forests of Borneo. It is a popular houseplant due to its striking foliage, which is dark green with silvery-white veins that resemble dragon scales. The leaves can grow up to 2 feet long and 1 foot wide.

Alocasia Dragon Scale requires bright, indirect light and a well-draining potting mix. It should be watered when the top inch of soil is dry. The plant is susceptible to root rot if it is overwatered.

Alocasia Dragon Scale can be propagated by division or by growing corms. To propagate by division, carefully separate a new plant from the mother plant and replant it in a new pot. To propagate by corms, plant the corms in a well-draining potting mix and keep the soil moist.
