Alocasia Scalprum

Alocasia scalprum is a species of flowering plant in the Araceae family, native to the Philippines. It is a rare and unique plant that has become increasingly popular among plant enthusiasts due to its stunning appearance.

Alocasia scalprum has long, slender leaves that are dark green with a glossy finish. The leaves are arrow-shaped and have a distinctive "scalpel-like" appearance. The undersides of the leaves are a deep red color.
