Family: Araceae
Scientific name: Alocasia brancifolia
Common name: Alocasia
Origin: New Guinea

This rare Alocasia species has striking leaves that are deeply incised. It differs from most other Alocasia-species, because they generally have heart-shaped leaves. Because of the shape it looks a bit like a fern or palm leaf. The leaf stalk is gracefully spotted and resembles the stalk of the well-known Alocasia zebrina. The species originates from the rain forests of New Guinea. The plant can grow up to 2 meters, but when grown as an indoor plant, it remains much smaller. Make sure that the plant is placed in a light spot without direct sunlight, that there is a high humidity (or spray the leaves with water regularly) and that the soil is well-drained. 

Sowing description: The already germinated seed can further develop into Spaghnum-moss. After the formation of the first leaves, it can be repotted in a light soil mixture with e.g. Spaghnum, peat, coconut fiber and/or other organic material.  

Sowing period: Whole year
Difficulty: Intermediate
Minimum temperature: 15 degrees Celsius

Het zaad kwam binnen in een plukje mos. Ik zag het nauwelijk zitten, maar heb het plukje in fijn gestampte potgrond gedaan en heel licht afgedekt. Na een week of 2 kwam het stengeltje boven en het groeit nu langzaam maar zeker door. Ik heb wel een grote plastic zak over de pot gedaan, rustend op satรฉ prikkers. Gaat prima zo.
