ALOCASIA DRAGON SCALE

Alocasia Dragon Scale has a distinct vein pattern and looks awesome. Native to Borneo, Southeast Asia, this cultivated variety of Alocasia is relatively easy to take care of. If you decide to keep one, here are things you need to know:

 Bright indirect sunlight
   Between 55 and 80ºF, best around 70%+ humidity
   Water once the top 2-3 inches of soil feels dry
 Toxic if ingested and can cause dermatitis on skin contact. Take great care with pets and children.
 A chunky, well-draining potting mix is essential. A mix of equal parts perlite, orchid mix, and coco coir works well.
Grows up to 3′ tall

In-Depth Care Guide

Alocasia dragon scale is a surviver and relatively easy to take care of. However, before making the move to keep one, plants moms and dads should make sure to learn about the care dragon scale needs. Here is the download:

Don't over-water your Alocasia Dragon Scale. Over-watering will lead to root rot. As a rule of thumb, water the plant only when the top soil is dry. When you water the plant, saturate the soil and let the water drain. Water the dragon scale more often than a succulent, but not much more.
