Alocasia baginda 'Dragon Scale'
If you're looking for a show stopper of a plant, look no further than the Alocasia 'Dragon Scale.' The highly textured leaves entice our imagination: Is this what the scales of a dragon might look like? The compact form makes it great for small spaces, but it is a bit more fussy than the other Alocasia's and needs some extra care.
