Portora is a beautiful, more cold hardly alocasia. It has large, ruffled, up-pointing leaves in a shade of vibrant green. Large Portoras, those that have formed a thick trunk, mimic the growing patters of palm trees more than the growing patterns of most alocasia. Because they are much more sun tolerant, they make a great centerpiece or border backdrop, and they work well against fences. They like well drained soil, but they do need to be watered regularly.
