Alocasia ‘Silver Dragon’
Meet Jinx. She’s determined to put a positive spin on her name, and refuses to believe in bad luck. Curses are for the the birds, says Jinx, and superstitions too. Unless they are good superstitions of course. Her favorite is wishing on a falling star while knocking on wood with a four-leaf clover in her pocket. All of her pockets actually. Never enough clover in pockets for ol’ Jinx.
We recommend planting this plug in our Aroid potting soil.
THIS PLANT SHIPS AS A 2″ FULLY ROOTED STARTER PLANT, AS SHOWN IN THE SECOND PHOTO. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included.
We root certain plants in sphagnum moss for greatest shipping success. When you go to repot your plant, carefully remove the growers pot and gently tease open the sphagnum and roots. If some sphagnum falls off, no worries! It can be discarded or added to your potting medium. If some stays attached to the roots, just let it be. Your roots will grow happily around it. We advise that you don’t overly mess with the roots, they don’t need to be picked clean. Questions? Message us!
