Plant lovers cultivate Alocasia sanderiana only as decorative leafy plants because when grown at home, it blooms exceptionally rarely. It is unpretentious in care; this is why it can often be found both in offices and apartments.
Alocasia sanderiana (the kris plant) is endemic to Northern Mindanao in the Philippines. It comes from the Araceae family. The International Union for Conservation of Nature classifies it as critically endangered.
