With large, uniquely shaped leaves, Alocasia macrorrhiza 'Stingray' is an evergreen, ornamental houseplant that makes a unique addition to your home. The emerald-green foliage looks like the wings and tail of a stingray, and this is an indoor plant that's sure to get a lot of attention.
Quick and easy to grow Alocasia has slightly ruffled, upward pointing, leathery leaves with scalloped edges and a distinctive tail on the end. The distinctive spotted markings make this unusual plant all the more unique by adding a little colour to the stems.
This unique, one-of-a-kind foliage plant originates from the tropics of Asia, and prefers a shady area so when growing it in your home, give it plenty of light and water but not direct sunlight -position it by a bright window.
Not only spectacular to look at, leafy tropical houseplants also provide a beneficial air-cleaning service. In a 20-year study by NASA, it was found that houseplants can actually improve the environment in our homes, clearing the air, removing toxins and adding valuable oxygen to the air that we breathe.
Supplied as an established plant in a 14cm pot, Alocasia Stingray will grow to a height of about 1.5-2m.
