Description: Alocasia 'Pink Dragon' is known for its unique and vibrant appearance, featuring pink petioles (stems) that support glossy, dark green leaves with subtle veins. The plant's contrasting colors and textures make it a popular choice for enthusiasts looking to add a touch of the exotic to their indoor garden.

🌿 Botanical Name: Alocasia 'Pink Dragon'

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

💧 Care Level: Moderate. Alocasia 'Pink Dragon' requires attention to its specific care needs, particularly regarding humidity, watering, and light, but can be a rewarding plant for those willing to meet its requirements.

📏 Approximate Size: Alocasia 'Pink Dragon' can reach about 2-3 feet (60-90 cm) in height and width. It is noted for its large, arrow-shaped leaves with striking pink stems and veins, contrasting beautifully against the dark green, glossy foliage.

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

💧 Water: Maintain evenly moist soil, but avoid waterlogging. Water when the top inch of soil begins to dry out, using distilled or rainwater to prevent leaf spotting from tap water minerals.

💦 Humidity: Requires high humidity levels to thrive. Use a humidifier, mist the plant regularly, or place it on a pebble tray with water to increase the surrounding 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 and best suited as an indoor plant in most climates, or outdoors in tropical climates with appropriate care.

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

🔄 Re-potting: Re-pot in the spring every 1 to 2 years, using a well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter. Choose a pot that is only slightly larger than the current one, as 'Pink Dragon' prefers not to be too root-bound.

🌱 Propagation: Propagate through division during repotting. Ensure each division includes at least one growth point for successful propagation. Be mindful that propagation requires careful handling to ensure the health of both the parent and offspring plants.
