A dream plant for lovers of dark foliage. The 'Purple Sword' variety has elongated leaves that are dark green above with purple undersides. Also, we adore it for its red-tinged stems and rippling leaves. At maturity, this plant can reach up to 2 feet in height. The alocasia prefers to be cramped in its pot.
