  Alocasia 'Green Shield'
From: "harrywitmore at witmore.net" <harrywitmore at witmore.net> on 2004.07.20 at 14:34:02(11778)
Does anyone have any experience with this Alocasia in a low humidity
environment. Can it withstand the conditions of the home in the northern
sections of the country during the winter?

Hello Harry:

A similar species Alocasia cuprea did not go dormant last year; we kept it
at 60dF or above and it is still putting on new leaves. The humidity was
relatively low. Our winters are not particularly humid, compared to summer;
we are now in the rainy season. Not the green shield, but quite similar.
Hope this helps...Christian
