So excited about this find!๐Ÿ˜ So Iโ€™ve seen a few people finding variegated Alocasias at big box stores lately, so that has made me step up my search ๐Ÿ˜‚ Well I finally found one worth the hunt! Mislabeled & definitely not getting the lighting it needed to pop those colors to their full potential, but Iโ€™ll get her there๐Ÿ˜ Hopefully since most leaves are variegated the corms will continue the variegation, weโ€™ll see๐ŸคžAlocasia Ninja Aurea #PlantAddict #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #HappyPlants #PlantTherapy #RarePlants #AlocasiaAddicts #GregGang #Alocasia
WHERE DID YOU FIND THIS BEAUTY ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ what a gorgeous plant! Iโ€™m so happy for you! ๐ŸŒฑโ˜€๏ธโค๏ธ
@RealSimpleMama girl youโ€™re going to laugh ๐Ÿ˜‚ Walmart!!!! Iโ€™m always going to all the different stores, Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, searching and searching since I see people posting that they are finding variegated cupreas and just gorgeous alocasias hitting the shelves so Iโ€™m like okay, maybe some of the mothers were variegated ๐Ÿค” and finally I stumbled upon this one and Iโ€™ve had it in quarantine for a little while and now Iโ€™m in the process of transitioning it over to semi hydro
BEAUTIFUL ๐Ÿคฉ My Alocasia is a Silver Dragon. These are starting become a new favorite. Theyโ€™re a gorgeous species โค๏ธ๐Ÿชด๐Ÿ‰
The more I look at it, the more I want to look at it...

I didn't expect to be as enthralled with alocasia as I've become.

All my alocasia are thanks to the clearance rack. Full stop. Weren't otherwise on my radar. Yucatan Princess was the gateway.

They seem so deceptively 'simple' as plants go. But then I realized: they're simply stunning.
What a find I have been looking but no luck. Your so lucky lol
@Propa NOOOOOOO HOW DARE YOU MENTION MY NEMESIS THE MART OF WAL ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ Dangit now maybe I have to goโ€ฆ ๐Ÿซข๐Ÿ˜
@ThePlantMomLife thank you! Silver dragons are absolutely stunning ๐Ÿ˜ and the variegated ones are absolutely breathtaking as well.
@CorvidFan lol thatโ€™s how Iโ€™ve become Iโ€™m just obsessed with it ๐Ÿ˜† Yucatรกn princess are beautiful! And yes alocasias are very complex plants, but totally worth the hassle I think๐Ÿ’š I dedicated an entire milsbo cabinet to them since theyโ€™re my current obsession
@Michelle5986 thatโ€™s how I was feeling too, but I didnโ€™t quit looking! Donโ€™t give up Michelle, you never know, you maybe out one day and look down and see the most beautifully variegated alocasia๐Ÿ˜
@RealSimpleMama lololololol ๐Ÿ˜‚ I think itโ€™s a sign, you have to go ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿคฃ
Got a mislabeled plant yesterday as well. 10 dollars for a plant I was struggling to find a seller of online and worth 4 times what I bought it for!
@ThisCalatheaCan that is amazing! Always a happy surprise ๐Ÿ’š
@Propa right I always look no matter what lol
Pretty!!!
Guess Iโ€™m gonna have to check Wally World here soon. Last week I had to run in for 2 things and there were a few cacti and thatโ€™s it. Hopefully soon for PA
SHE. IS. GORGEOUS. I have been wanting one, but they seem so expensive!
@KDkat3 I check all the Wallyโ€™s around me often and Iโ€™m noticing theyโ€™re flooding in now. Hopefully youโ€™ll see some soon! ๐Ÿ’š
@peixe.pt thanks so much!! Yes I want all the variegated alocasias ๐Ÿ˜‚ but they are pricey! I pulled about 6-8 corms out of her, and I threw them into the fluval prop boxes. Fingers crossed for some variegated babies
