Alocasia sanderiana Nobilis
Alocasia sanderiana ‘Nobilis’ is a very striking plant with prominent lobes, slim shape and razor-like edges. The main veins are almost silvery and the smaller veins like carvings. The undersides of the leaf can mature to be a deep, almost blood purple.
Alocasia is a genus in the Araceae family, commonly referred to as the Aroid family. Despite its nickname ‘Elephant Mask’ or ‘African Mask’, species from this genus originate from tropical and subtropical parts of Asia and Eastern Australia.
These plants typically grow close to the ground, but some species can grow to have quite large leaves as the plant matures in the right conditions. Alocasia are notoriously prone to spider mites, so we recommend doing preventative care and regular inspection of both the top and undersides of the leaves.
