We advise you to purchase a so-called "heat pack" for areas where it freezes in Winter. A heat pack protects your plant(s) from freezing during transit. One heat pack protects up to 4 plants in one shipping carton. (a heat pack doesn't add weight to the total order!)

Add a Heat Pack to Your Order Here.

For the Northern States where temperatures drop below 50°F (also & especially at night), we recommend adding a Heat Pack to your houseplant order. (November - April). This way you can be sure that your plants will arrive in good condition.

One heat pack is enough to ship up to 4 houseplants in one shipping box and releases its heat for over 72 hours of transit time.

  • Botanical Name: Alocasia Amazonica
  • Common Names: Bambino
  • DescriptionThe Alocasia Amazonica ‘Bambino’ has narrow, arrowhead-shaped, green leaves with pronounced white veins. The backsides of the leaves are burgundy. The Alocasia Amazonica is a unique houseplant but beware that it is on the harder side to care for. It requires bright, indirect sunlight as well as soil that is constantly moist from watering. Toxic to pets.

 

Boasting some of the most striking foliage in the houseplant world, the Alocasia is an increasingly popular addition to indoor plant collections due to its unmatched visual and sculptural appeal. There are around 80 species of this distinctly veined stunner native to subtropical Asia and eastern Australia, and some specimens boast leaves that can grow up to almost three feet long!

Alocasias need bright, but indirect light. This is due to the plant's natural habitat, on the forest floor beneath the tree canopy. Direct sun will cause the leaves to burn, so avoid placing your Alocasia in a spot where it'll be exposed to direct sun for a prolonged period. This plant is not tolerant of lower light conditions though, so make sure the space you're placing yours in feels very bright. Alocasias are native to — and grow best — in humid environments, so avoid placing yours near to an A/C or a heater if possible.

Alocasia leaves can become top heavy on their slender stems. If yours begin to droop, it can be a sign of the plant having too little light, too much or too little water in the soil, or not enough nutrients. The plant will right itself over time but you also can stake the stems while it recovers.
