Alocasia Care

Posted by Hulya Mehmet on

Alocasia plants make a statement with their bold, arrow-head shaped leaves and tall stems.

 

Light

Your Golden Alocasia will thrive in bright indirect light. Never allow your plant to stand in the direct sunlight—the leaves will burn.

Water

Water when the top 25% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.

Humidity

Your Alocasia prefers a humid environment. Mist often..

Temperature

Your Alocasia enjoys the warmth, preferably between 16-30 degrees, so maintain indoor temperatures above 16 degrees. Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.

Food

Feed once a month during the spring and summer with a liquid fertilizer for indoor plants.

Toxicity

Alocasias are mildly toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.

Additional Care

Your Alocasia will go through a dormant period when light levels and temperatures are reduced in the winter months. During dormancy, keep your Alocasia in a warmer spot in your home and reduce the watering but do not allow it to completely dry out. You will see it perk up again in the spring.
