A unique tropical look in your home
HOW TO GROW ALOCASIA PLANTs
Alocasias are absolutely stunning houseplants but can be a bit difficult for beginners. They require bright indirect light, preferably behind a shear curtain and they also love high humidity, as most tropical plants do. With the right care the payoff is big because this plant is gorgeous!
Alocasias do well with bright light, but no direct sun.
Keep soil moist spring through fall when plant is actively growing. Water sparingly in winter, allowing soil to become almost dry between watering.
Alocasias love a peat moss based mix, such as African violet potting mix.
We suggest Fertilome African Violet Potting Mix
Fertilize alocasia a couple of times a year to keep it healthy. Use any fertilizer formulated for use on houseplants.
We suggest Schultz Plant Food Plus
Alocasia plants like average warmth between 65-75°.
Alocasias requires moist air, preferably 50% relative humidity or higher.
IS IT PET FRIENDLY?
Like most houseplants, alocasia plants are mildly toxic if eaten. They may cause some discomfort and vomiting when eaten. Keep away from animals and children.
