Not a whole lot to report today. Got very wet in work. I think the rain is here to stay, for the night anyway.
We got a delivery of houseplants in today. Has anyone any advice on the care of a plant called Alocasia? I have never heard of it before, or even seen one until today. I think the foliage is just amazing. And there was only one of them in the whole delivery. And very cheap. I didn't even need to reduce it. Ha ha. I just had to buy it.
8.45pm. Just been googling on this plant. It's full name is Alocasia sanderiana (Kris plant). It's an ornamental plant of the Araceae family and native to the Philippines. It's a tropical perennial and can grow up to 6ft in tropical areas. However, it remains much smaller here. What do ye think?
