alocasia lauterbachiana 

Purple Sword Plant


90-100cm tall


A somewhat finicky variety, Purple Sword Alocasia do not need too much water. Being a tubular they can suffer from root rot from over watering. We suggest always checking to make sure the soil is dry before watering!

They love warm enviroments & indirect sunlight. 

These plants often lie dormant in winter - so fear not! If your Purple Sword is looking a bit withered or is loosing leaves, be patient - it is probably just 'sleeping'!
