DIY: Body balance with Alocasia

Dynamic leaf structures require a soft touch container

To provide an interesting counterbalance to Alocasia's light, sharp and transparent lines, you should use a sturdy, somewhat heavier base. Wrapping it in soft felt creates the perfect balance between masculine and feminine shapes which is so trendy right now. Wrap your Alocasia up now for a quick and easy transformation guaranteed to turn heads!
