Beatrix, an Alocasia Amazonica Bambino Arrow or Jewel Alocasia, is a close relative of the Pippa, our Alocasia Polly. Just like Pippa, Beatrix has dark green leaves with silver-white veins that almost look like a bolt of lightning.
Native to the rainforests of South America, Beatrix is used to swamp-like conditions, so make sure you don’t let her dry out or she might not forgive you!
Beatrix, Alocasia Bambino Arrow - Small
Beatrix prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
