Red Secret has an other-worldly foliage. It's coppery-green metallic leaves transform as it matures to a darker, richer metallic color with a beautiful maroon underside. The magic for the plant happens on the Island of Brunei just below Vietnam off the Java Sea. Given its native environment, this jewel needs humidity between 80% and 95% humidity simply achieved with a humidifier.

  • 12-18 in tall at maturity
  • Known for dramatic foliage color and unique shape
  • Perfect for warm, humid spaces
  • Prefers medium indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight
  • 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.
