GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Tropical plants in the Alocasia genus feature stunning foliage that can become the centerpiece of a garden or room.
  • In the right conditions, they can grow very fast, but they are also sensitive plants.
  • Alocasia grows well in big pots; they can thrive in the summertime and then be brought indoors in the winter.
  • Some species are considered invasive, especially along the Gulf Coast in the U.S. Check with your local municipality if you have concerns prior to planting this species outdoors.
  • If you have children or pets, you may want to avoid these plants as the leaves are toxic to humans and animals.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Feed with liquid fertilizer during the growing season or frequent, small applications of granule fertilizer.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Needs vary from shade to full sunlight, depending on the variety.
  • Ask the grower if the plant is sun-trained.
  • Leaf color tends to be better among plants that grow best with more light.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Keep Alocasia plants moist all year; they are water-loving plants.
  • There is a fine line with these plants.
  • You want to keep the soil moist, but not soggy.
  • They require less water during the winter months because the plant is dormant.
