Alocasia Red Secret or Alocasia cuprea 'Red Secret', is a stunning and rare tropical houseplant with glossy leaves that emerge coppery-green and mature to a deep, metallic red. The undersides of the leaves are a maroon color, and the veins are a deep red, giving them a reptilian appearance.
In the right conditions, it can grow to be a compact and bushy plant, reaching a height of approximately 1 to 2 feet (30 to 60 centimeters). Its relatively small size makes it suitable for tabletops, shelves, or as a statement piece in a decorative planter.
Alocasia Red Secret is easy to care for and a beautiful addition to any home or office decor.
They prefer bright, indirect light, but they can tolerate some low light conditions.
Water the plant when the soil is dry to the touch.
