Send a Secret surprise to your loved ones with the gorgeous Alocasia Red Secret. The plant comes ready potted in our white Forest Planter for a simple and easy gift.
Given its mysterious appearance and rarity, it is no wonder the Alocasia ‘Red Secret’ is so named. Its big leaves are a shade of deep burgundy with a metallic tint, giving it an almost iridescent look. Whoever discovered this probably kept the plant in secret and with good reason.
Caring for this plant is close to other Elephant Ears. It grows best under bright, indirect light. If grown outdoors, it prefers shelter from the hot afternoon sun and a warm spot. Watering can be done about once a week, allowing top 1-2 inches of soil to dry out between waterings.
Due to its relatively easy care and air-purifying nature, the Alocasia Red Secret is a perfect rare houseplant for a new collection. Can you keep a secret? ;)
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
