Portodora Shield is a solitary form with an attractively spotted trunk.
The deep green foliage grows up to six feet tall with each scalloped leaf getting up to three feet wide so it will be a big, beautiful boy in time.
An excellent, hardy variety.
Origin: Southeast Asia.
Handy Growing Tips:
Alocasia leaves can become top heavy on their slender stems. If yours begin to droop, it can be a sign of the plant having too little light, too much or too little water in the soil, or not enough nutrients. The plant will right itself over time, but you also can stake the stems while it recovers.
Note: Alocasia have a dormant period where leaves will fade and die so do not be alarmed when this happens. During this period, the plants will require less water, so simply moisten the soil from time to time.
If you have heating units or air-conditioners, it is best to avoid placing plants underneath or next to them. This is because of the air blowing out from these units can be very hot or cold which can leave a healthy plant burnt, damaged and stressed. We recommend the Australian made Munash Organics soil food & foliage spray or The Plant Runner Plant Food or neem oil to keep you plants happy and healthy!
WE CANNOT SHIP PLANTS OUTSIDE OF AUSTRALIA!!!
*Disclaimer: We pack our gorgeous plants for shipment extremely carefully, however we do ask that you keep in mind that once they leave our store, we cannot guarantee how carefully they are handled in transit. We cannot guarantee they have been sung to or talked to by the postmen!
So, if a leaf is a little bent, bruised or maybe a small stem broken off, we cannot control this.
