A dream plant for lovers of dark foliage. The 'Purple Sword' variety has elongated dark green leaves on top with purple undersides. Also, we love it for its red-tinted stems and the undulation of its leaves. When mature, this plant can reach up to 2 feet in height. Alocasia prefers to be cramped in its pot.

Attention! Risk of toxicity if swallowed. The sap of Alocasias contains oxalic acid - risk of irritation in contact with the skin or eyes.
