Alocasia Baginda Silver Dragon, also known as the Silver Dragon Alocasia or the Alocasia Baginda Dragon Scale, is a tropical houseplant with silvery-green leaves that have dark green veins and edges. Here are some care tips for this plant:

  1. Light: Alocasia Baginda Silver Dragon prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some lower light conditions, but avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, and allow any excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so make sure the soil has good drainage.

  3. Humidity: Alocasia Baginda Silver Dragon likes high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves with water, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water near the plant.

  4. Temperature: The ideal temperature range for this plant is between 65-80Ā°F (18-27Ā°C).

  5. Soil: Alocasia Baginda Silver Dragon prefers a well-draining potting mix that is rich in organic matter. You can use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.

  6. Fertilizer: Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

  7. Pruning: Prune the plant to maintain its shape and remove any dead or yellowing leaves.

  8. Support: Alocasia Baginda Silver Dragon can grow quite tall and become top-heavy, so it may need support in the form of a stake or trellis.

  9. Propagation: Alocasia Baginda Silver Dragon can be propagated by division. Carefully separate the plant into two or more sections, making sure each section has roots and leaves, and plant them in separate pots.

Remember to keep your plant away from pets and children as it's toxic when ingested. Alocasia Baginda Silver Dragon is a relatively high-maintenance plant that requires some attention, but its stunning foliage is well worth the effort.
