This Alocasia has been given the name Stingray due to its big leaves that almost resembles little rays with long tails. If you look at the stem closely, you will see a beautiful pattern of black and white that reveals its kinship to the plant, Alocasia zebrina. The Stingray is a fast-growing plant. It often drops a leaf, but if you remove this it will have energy to grow a new one very fast.
Botanical name: Alocasia macrorrhiza
Watering: A Stingray always wants slightly moist soil, but it is very sensitive to overwatering. If you water often and regularly, but only add a little bit of water at a time, you are the perfect match for a Stingray. If the leaves "sweat" and seem to collect sap on top of the leaves, it might be a sign of overwatering.
Location: A Stingray needs a bright location of indirect sunlight. Place it close to a window to make sure it has enough light, but never put it in direct sunlight.
Temperature: A Stingray tolerates temperatures between 15-30 °C.
