The Alocasia 'Regal Shields' thick and durable green leaves show off with dark purple-tinged undersides. The light green veins on the upper surface and purple-yellow-green veins on the lower surface gives an unusual color distinction to any room. Growing up to 9' tall and 4' wide makes this one a focal point to any brightly lit room!

Fun Facts

Never let 'em see you sweat. That saying doesn't go for the Alocasia. It will sweat droplets of moisture at the tip of its leaves and may show up in the mornings. Guttation, as it's called in the horticulture world, is a way to restore balance to their nutrient and water content.
