This Alocasia is relatively new to the horticultural scene, and joins the ranks of the "jewel" Alocasias. While not as difficult as some, this plant does have a finicky nature. Alocasia infernalis tends to grow a more elongated stem and so with time becomes "wobbly" or top-heavy in the pot. Full grown blooming specimens are amongst the smallest of the jewel types.
The inflorescences have a morphology similar to that of the A. cuprea, and in some ways this plant is reminiscent of a very dwarf and very dark A. cuprea.
