As a very exotic and rare houseplant the Alocasia ‘Stingray’ is an upcoming trendy indoor plant.
It got its name – Alocasia ‘Stingray’ – from its eye-catching, upright, wing-shaped leaves with a long pointed ‘tail’ that make the plant look a lot like my namesake.
It is not hard to keep in good condition.
Likes moist but well-drained soil of moderate fertility in partial shade.
Indoors, grow in filtered light. Provide high humidity, ample water, and fertilizer every 2 to 3 weeks during the growing season.
The Stingray can grow up to 150cm high and 150cm wide.
The Alocasia Stingray can be toxic to pets when eaten in higher doses.
