With origins in the South Pacific Islands and the Philippines, Alocasia Pink Dragon is a tropical plant that loves humidity and sunlight. Growing from its distinct pink stems are large, arrowhead-shaped leaves with a glossy, dark green surface and prominent light green veins. The undersides of the leaves are an elegant burgundy, and in the right conditions, the leaves can grow up to 20 inches large. These plants are typically not bushy; instead they usually bear one impressive leaf per stem. Luckily, this is not a cause for concern; even if all the leaves of an Alocasia Pink Dragon fall off, new leaves can still sprout because the plant sprouts from a bulb. From these small bulbs, Pink Dragons love to grow, and can reach up to 8-10 feet tall. Under the right conditions and with attentive care, these plants grow relatively quickly and can be quite durable, lasting for years as a stunning part of any home.

Light: Hailing from near the Equator, the Alocasia Pink Dragon is a light-loving plant. However, it’s important to avoid excessive light – too much bright, direct light will cause scorching and browning of the leaves. Typically, “direct” light refers to light which has not been filtered through a medium like glass or reflected off another surface. Bright, indirect light is recommended for Alocasia Pink Dragon; place it no more than 3 feet away from a window, ideally one that is west- or south-facing, or in a room with lots of reflected light. 

Watering: Because Pink Dragon comes from tropical regions, it loves humidity and moisture. Therefore, regular watering is required to keep these plants healthy. The most ideal conditions for Pink Dragon roots is constant moisture but not wetness – allowing the roots to sit in water-saturated soil will lead to root rot, so it is important to ensure the soil used for an Alocasia Pink Dragon drains well.
