Love my new Amazonica Alocasias!
This is one of those plants that I have wanted to buy for the longest time, but they are so expensive. Well, as luck would have it, The Captain and I discovered the garden center at the MacDill Air Force Base Commissary. Just about everything at the commissary is much cheaper than anywhere else and we got one good sized plant for $1.99.
Yes!!! I am doing the happy dance for sure. These plants will grow beautifully in containers and since they don't like full sun, but bright light or partial shade, they are perfect for the Carport Jungle.
So far we have three of them and will continue to buy one or two every time we visit the base. They have a great selection of tropicals at very reasonable prices, so we have found our source for fixing up the Carport Jungle beautifully. I have my eye on their gorgeous selection of White Flower Bird of Paradise.
We will start taking photos of the progress and will do a page of the transformation on the website.
More to come on these beautiful plants . . . care, propagation, etc. I love all types of elephant ears!
