Tips: 

  • For optimal performance, keep in a warm space and provide extra humidity when possible
  • Feed once per month at half strength when plant is actively growing (we use NOOT)
  • Alocasia does best with bright indirect light but will benefit from some early morning or late day sun indoors (right in front of an eastern or western window), particularly during wintertime. You may need to use a grow light during dark winter months or move them to a sunnier window during that time.
  • It prefers to be consistently moist, but not wet and needs to have good drainage. It can't take wet soil, but also doesn't tolerate dry soils well. A well-draining soil is necessary, and the plant should not be allowed to sit in water. Allow the top inch or so to dry out before watering again.
  • All-purpose potting mixes with additional orchid bark and perlite added is a beneficial medium for Alocasias.
  • Alocasias also would appreciate higher humidity, so break out that humidifier.
  • If your plant drops, it's leaves don't give up. (These plants like very consistent conditions overall when it comes to watering, temperature, and light.)  Alocasias grow from bulb-like corms and can sprout new leaves even when there are no active ones
