  1. Grower's Choice
  2. Alocasia Characteristics:
    • Alocasia plants are known for their large, arrow-shaped or heart-shaped leaves, often featuring unique patterns and colors. They are members of the Araceae family.
  3. Light Requirements:

    • Alocasia plants generally prefer bright, indirect light. While they can tolerate some shade, they should be protected from intense, direct sunlight.
  4. Watering:

    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Alocasias like their soil to stay evenly moist, but they can be sensitive to overwatering.
  5. Humidity:

    • Alocasias appreciate higher humidity levels. Providing some extra humidity, especially in drier indoor environments, can benefit the plant.
  6. Temperature:

    • Maintain a warm environment. Alocasias thrive in temperatures between 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (18 to 27 degrees Celsius). They are sensitive to cold and should be protected from drafts.
  7. Soil:

    • Use a well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter. A mix formulated for aroids or tropical plants is suitable.
  8. Fertilization:

    • Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or eliminate fertilization during the dormant period.
  9. Growth Habit:

    • Alocasia plants can vary in size and growth habit. Some stay compact, while others can become quite large.
