Care Notes: Drying this plant out too much will cause the plant to go into a dormancy state.

* Alocasias are mildly toxic to both humans and pets, as all parts of the plant contain calcium oxalate crystals. We deem this plant safe for use with the above animals, but the more risk-averse may wish to avoid it

For more information, please visit the ASPCA list of Toxic and Non-Toxic Plants.

Shipping Notes: Generous LIVE ARRIVAL GUARANTEE offered.
As a good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly and removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants may vary in color, size, and appearance.
