The Alocasia stingray owes its name to the shape of its leaves. These are wing-like and have a pointed tail, which makes their shape quite similar to an actual stingray. This tropical plant is originally from the Asian tropics, where its roots are used in various types of dishes. While every kind of Alocasia has another leaf shape, all kinds are known for their unusually large leaves. These leaves can grow up to 1,5 metres in length. This makes the Alocasia the perfect hiding spot for all kinds of animals living in its natural environment. But the Alocasia Gageana also proves quite useful in your living room! As Alocasia’s have air-purifying properties, they produce extra oxygen and break down harmful substances. This improves the quality of your living environment ánd makes you feel happier.

Will my plants be potted before delivery?
If you purchase a plant-pot combination, they will be delivered separately. Potting our plants is very easy! You can repot a plant from the plastic growers’ pot into the pot. You might add a layer of hydro grains, which will allow room for excess water to drain. If the pot is large enough, you could also simply place the plant with the growers’ pot in it. Is the growers’ pot a bit higher than the pot? That’s an easy fix. The growers’ pot is easily removed, after which you can press down the soil a bit. Wondering you have to do the potting yourself? Well, by delivering the pot and plant separately, we can pack both extra carefully. This way, we ensure they are both delivered in a perfect condition.
Our plants are delivered fresh from the grower. They make a quick pit stop at our distribution centre, where they are carefully packaged in a plant-friendly box. After packaging, your plants are sent straight to your home!
Because plants are living products, they are never exactly identical to the pictures shown on our website. Height measurements and shapes may differ due to weather conditions, for example.
