Adonis's survival guide
Adonis is a Filipino name meaning “extremely good looking” and “lord”. Adonis thinks Adonis embodies both these qualities perfectly. He sees himself sailing the Pacific with the wind in his leaves: King of the Ocean, Lord of the Seas. He’s a swashbuckling pirate at heart, rescuing damsels in distress and sword fighting bad guys. Anger him and he’ll challenge you to a midnight duel. (This is, sadly, why we’ve stopped hiring interns. Rest in peace, Steven.)
Our Care App will help you after your purchase.
What makes Adonis so special
Adonis, a.k.a. The Purple Sword, is an Alocasia plant with long, spear-like leaves. He hails from the tropics, so he likes warmth and indirect sun. Mist his leaves, keep his soil moist, and, if you have pets, be careful because he’s toxic to ingest. Adonis apologizes in advance for any trouble but he can’t help his dangerous ways. You can’t give a plant a body like his and expect him not to use it.

Good question! We measure the height from the top of the plant to the bottom of the pot (including the pot itself).
Our app will tell you exactly when and how much to feed and water your plants. Are you already a pro in taking care of your plant? Great! The App is completely optional of course.
