Alocasia Amazonica - 'Alocasia Polly'
A combination of several plants into one, this hybrid has a reputation for being slightly fussy, but if you understand it’s needs and treat it right, it can be a very rewarding experience. Polly thrives in bright, well-lit rooms, though as with many plants that are used to hiding in the defused sunlight given to it by taller plants, it doesn’t work well with direct light. Its ‘parent plants’ Naturally grow in humid forests across Asia, and in UK homes they pretty much enjoy the same set up - bright light, though not direct, lots of humidity and soil that remains moist but not soggy.
With its otherworldly look, The Alocasia Polly is truly unique in style, with its exceptionally deep green leaves and bold, almost silver coloured lines. Although it’s not for beginners, it’s care needs aren’t overly complicated either.
