*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 visits the ASPCA list of Toxic and Non-Toxic Plants

True beauty

This alocasia is beautiful. Dark green leaves that are so dark they're almost black with a velvety feel. Partner that with the white veining and you have a gorgeous show plant. Mine showed up at about 10inches tall with 4 shoots and a 5th growing (it's opened up and is as large as mine hand now!)
