Alocasia “Dragon Scale” has an incredible, veined texture that, imaginatively, can be said to resemble dragon scales. It is a rare houseplant with unique leaf textures.
Towards the center of Alocasia Dragon Scale’s silvery-green leaves, the color tend to get darker, giving the lighter shade a luminous tone. The back of the leaf, the undersides, are pale cream, with vibrant maroon veins. The young leaves have a lighter color but it deepens with maturity.
Alocasia Dragon Scale likes to have slightly moist soil, although you should let the soil dries a bit between watering. It likes relatively high humidity therefore misting it often will help it stay healthy. Give it bright, but indirect sunlight.
