Alocasia 'Red Secret'
Commonly known as 'Red Secret', you can see why this plant is popular in the houseplant community. The Alocasia cupera are a deep red, maroon that has a coppery, metallic sheen to the foliage which changes depending on the light. It's an extremely attractive indoor plant to grow, which is highly sought after.
Growing in the understories of Borneo, give your Cupera bright, filtered light. As an aroid they like their medium to dry out, this allows oxygen back into the root system, which is much needed for these plants.
Alocasia can be prone to spider mites, keeping them in a humid enviroment is key to keeping your plant happy.
Due to this species being a little more high maintenance than some of it's cousins, we'd recommend this plant for those whom have experience in growing Alocasia at home.
All plants are sold in their nursery pots. Decorative pots are sold seperately. You can choose your style pot from our Pot Collection.
Do not pot directly into our decorative pots. It's much better for your plant to keep it in its nursery pot to allow adequate drainage.
