 We feel really lucky to be able to deliver this plant to your door as Alocasia calidora is pretty rare!

This Pink Dragon is considered rare and hard to find because its broad leaves and deep veins made it highly desirable. As if that wasn't enough the undersides of Alocasia's leaves are a beautiful burgundy, and the stems show in lovely shades of pink!

As with many rare find, this plant can be a little bit of a diva. However, under the right conditions, it can grow big, with leaves reaching up to 50cm and stems getting to around 1.2m. If you feel generous you could propagate this plant and gift this rare find to friends or just grow another for yourself!
