Scientific name: Alocasia reversa
Common name: Alocasia
Origin: Borneo

This is a small Alocasia species from the lowland rainforest of Borneo. There the species grows on calcareous slopes, where it stays close to the ground due to its small size. The leaves can reach a size of 20 cm and are a striking sight. Unlike most Alocasia species, the leaves are light-colored and the veins are dark green. And this is reversed in other Alocasia species: hence the species name 'reversa'. 

The plant can be grown in an airy, permeable soil with coconut fiber, Sphagnum and perlite. If necessary, extra lime can be added, because the plant is used to this naturally. The soil can be a little drier between waterings, but it is important not to let it dry out completely. Furthermore the plant likes a light position without direct sunlight, a relatively high humidity (>70%) and a temperature of 22-28 deg C. 

Sowing directions: The seed can be germinated in Sphagnum-moss at a temperature of 25-30 deg C. After the formation of the first roots, it can be transferred to a well-drained, airy soil.  

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