Description: The Alocasia Amazonica 'Reversa' is a distinctive variety of Alocasia with its unique leaf patterning and coloration. The leaves are deep green with prominent veins that appear to be reversed in coloration compared to the classic Alocasia Amazonica, giving this plant a stunning visual contrast.

🌿 Botanical Name: Alocasia Amazonica 'Reversa'

🐾 Pet Warning: Toxic to cats and dogs if ingested. It can cause oral irritation, pain and swelling of the mouth, tongue, and lips, vomiting, and difficulty swallowing. It's advisable to keep this plant out of reach of pets.

💧 Care Level: Moderate to High. Alocasia 'Reversa' requires attention to humidity, watering, and light to thrive, making it somewhat challenging for novice gardeners.

📏 Approximate Size: Alocasia 'Reversa' is known for its moderate size, typically reaching up to 18-24 inches (45-60 cm) in height and width. It features striking foliage that is often admired for its unique appearance.

🌞 Light: Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate medium light levels. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves, and too little light, which can lead to leggy growth.

💧 Water: Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Use filtered or rainwater to avoid mineral build-up on the leaves.

💦 Humidity: Requires high humidity levels to thrive. Consider using a humidifier, misting the plant regularly, or placing it on a pebble tray with water to maintain the necessary humidity.

🌡️ Temperature: Thrives in warm conditions, with ideal temperatures ranging from 65°F to 85°F (18°C to 29°C). Protect from temperatures below 60°F (15°C), as cold can cause damage.

❄️ Hardiness: Not frost-tolerant. Best grown as an indoor plant except in tropical climates where it can be cultivated outdoors.

🌱 Fertilizing: Feed every 4 to 6 weeks during the growing season with a balanced, liquid fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. Reduce feeding in the winter.

🔄 Re-potting: Re-pot in the spring every 1 to 2 years, using a well-draining potting mix that's rich in organic matter. Choose a container slightly larger than the previous one as 'Reversa' enjoys a bit of room to grow but doesn't like to be overly root-bound.

🌱 Propagation: Propagation is generally achieved through division during repotting. Ensure each division includes part of the rhizome and a few leaves. Be mindful that propagation can be challenging and may require some experience.
