Proven Winners® Houseplant of the Year for 2024!

Dragonite has amazing texture on the leaves that really lends a unique look. The shield shaped leaves range from olive green to pewter black and can even boast purple shades at times. This is a smaller growing Alocasia which makes it ideal for just about any area of the home, but will preform best when it's grown in a high humidity area.

  • Known for dramatic foliage and unique shape
  • Perfect for warm, humid spaces
  • Prefers medium bright indirect light in the AM or PM, typically from an east or west window.
  • Uses: Desktops, Humid Spaces, Windowsills

Care Information

  • For optimal performance, keep at 60-85°F (15-29°C).
  • Feed once per month at half strength when plant is actively growing.
  • Protect furniture when watering.
  • Alocasia does best with bright indirect light but will benefit from some early morning or late day sun indoors (right in front of an eastern or western window), particularly during wintertime. You may need to use a grow light during dark winter months or move them to a sunnier window during that time.
  • It prefers to be consistently moist, but not wet and needs to have good drainage. It can't take wet soil, but also doesn't tolerate dry soils well. A well-draining soil is necessary, and the plant should not be allowed to sit in water. Allow the top inch or so to dry out before watering again.
  • All-purpose potting mixes with additional orchid bark and perlite added is a beneficial medium for Alocasias.
  • Alocasias also would appreciate higher humidity, so break out that humidifier.
  • If your plant drops its leaves don't give up. (These plants like very consistent conditions overall when it comes to watering, temperature, and light.) Alocasias grow from bulb-like corms and can sprout new leaves under the right conditions.
