It’s all in the details
A striking plant, that's perfect in a south facing spot. It loves bright light, but be careful not to allow its waxy leaves to become scorched. Not the most low-maintanence plant, it likes to stay moist so little and often (around 2-3 times a week) is best for watering, keep the compost moist with warm water. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Scale this back in winter when it becomes dormant.
Mon Pote’s take on this
The markings on the stem of an Alocasia Stingray are incredible as well as its stringray shaped leaves, it never fails to impress. Not to worry if it starts to slow it's growth during the winter-time as new growth will start to surface again during the spring.
