About the plant:
Alocasia , or alocasia in Czech , is a genus of the Araceae family . These plants are massive herbs with a thick rhizome. Their homeland is the subtropical and tropical regions of Asia, Australia and the Pacific. In Southeast Asia and Oceania, they are particularly popular for their edible rhizomes and small boiled leaves. Although in their raw state they contain calcium oxalate, which causes mucous membrane irritation and nausea, they are edible after heat treatment. At the same time, the rhizomes are also sought after by Indian and South Asian traditional medicine for their healing effects.

Alocasia Micholitziana Variegata ( also known as Frydek Variegata ) is a very rare collector's species of alocasia with large, dark green velvety leaves with white variegation.
Alocasia generally belongs to the rather demanding houseplants, which are sensitive to temperature, humidity and overwatering. At the same time, keep in mind with alocasias that they often replace old leaves with new ones (that is, they usually do not increase their number, especially in younger plants.
