Description

Alocasia lowii Polly Amazonica is a smaller, more compact version of Alocasia x amazonica but the bigger leaf version of Alocasia lowii Polly Amazonica Bebe... in other words, she is just the right size. 

Her spear-shaped big, glossy dark green leaves have broad, bold white veins raised, giving her a dramatic look. It is a stunning feature plant indoors or perfect for shadier parts of a tropical garden. 

Her name might be misleading. It has been misreported that she hails from the tropical rainforests of Brazil; however, this hybrid was actually created in a nursery in Florida in the 1950s. The nursery was called Amazon Nursery, and the owner named it after his own business. Regardless of her origins, this babe likes a well-lit position away from direct sun, requires high humidity and does not like the cooler. In actual fact, she is known to go dormant in the wintertime and come back strong in the spring. 

There is actually a great trick you can use to determine if your houseplant needs to be watered. After you water her for the first time, lift her and feel her weight. Now you know how heavy she is when you've watered. After 2 weeks, lift her again and feel the difference in weight. She should be really light now. So now you know how light she is when she needs to be watered. You can use this trick throughout the year and only water your plant once it's light again.
