    Care Instructions

    Light

    Bright indirect light. Leaves are sensitive and can burn easily from direct light or hot temperatures. Alocasias will move their leaves towards the light in undesirable low light levels.

    Water

    Prefers evenly damp-moist soil. Alocasias will begin to droop when they require more water.

    Temperature

    Average from 65°F - 75°F

    Feeding

    Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.

    Toxicity

    Toxic. Highly toxic when ingested.

    Grooming

    Gently wipe down with a damp cloth to remove dust. Remove yellowing leaves right away.

    Care

    Rotate your plant every time you water to encourage even growth. Propagate through divison or separating corms.
