Alocasia New Guinea Gold... A very unusual form from Papua New Guinea and very rarely offered especially of this size and can grow up to Two and half metres tall!! The Alocasia New Guinea Gold is a very unique aroid that has a peculiar habit of producing variegated leaves only at certain times of the year, typically late summer through Autumn... Infrequently missing out entirely in a year. This is not a typical case of variegation reversion since the plant does return to producing variegated leaves each cycle. There seems to be no apparent reason for this behaviour. This very beautiful plant is quite different from the typical elephant ear.
Care: Keep the soil moist at all time but never soggy. The Alocasia New Guinea Gold will thrive in bright filtered light I would suggest you try and place her somewhere, where she will receive as much light as you can, not direct sunlight. Give her a turn each week to keep her looking nice and even.
Size: Pot Diameter cm - Total Plant height approximately cm
Toxicity: Considered poisonous. Keep away from children and animals.
Difficulty: Easy - Recommended for the plant enthusiast and collectors
Feeding: General, the majority of houseplants should be fed every 2nd watering during the growing season (Spring and Summer), for me, it's about which every 14 days. In autumn and winter, I feed less, as indoor plants will require fewer nutrients.
