This jewel of an Alocasia is a bit easier to culture than many of the other jewels. The main need this plant has is for warmth, as they just about stop growing when the temps are below 60 degrees F. Some refer to this plant as "Dewey's reversa", implying that there is another A. reversa that is not "Dewey's". The name "reversa" is supposed to refer to the coloration pattern that is the reverse of what is commonly seen, but we know of no other Alocasia like this one that has the pattern reversed. Perhaps the thinking was that, unlike the species with silver veins and dark green between the veins, this plant has dark around the veins and lighter coloration between.
This close-up of an inflorescence shows the distinctive coloration that sets it apart from plants like A. reginula and A. rugosa.
