Generally, Alocasia tends to have very large leaves that grow larger over time - Tiny Dancer, however, keeps its leaves on the smaller side and focuses on growing the stems longer (hence the name 'Tiny Dancer')!
The small, cute leaves grow steadily upwards and outwards. New leaves grow in as the plant matures, filling out its canopy but remaining dedicated to growing each stem as long as possible.
Propagate easily by placing a cutting into water and allow to root.
Lighting: Bright indirect, no direct
Water: Allow the top two or three inches of the soil to dry out between waterings. Keep soil evenly moist, avoiding any water buildup.
