  • A mutation of an already beautiful specimen, this dark form of Alocasia sarawakensis stands tall and powerful with bold foliage reaching eight feet high and five feet wide.
  • The thick chocolate stems from this powerful princess hold her leaves straight and tall all summer like an Indian headdress.
