    Care Information:

    Light:

    • Prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.
    • Can tolerate lower light conditions but may result in slower growth and less variegation.

    Water:

    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings.
    • Use well-draining soil to prevent root rot.

    Humidity:

    • Thrives in high humidity environments. 
    • Use a humidifier or place the plant on a pebble tray filled with water to maintain optimal humidity levels. Placing it in a cabinet with good ventilation also helps. 

    Temperature:

    • Prefers temperatures between 70-80°F (18-27°C).
    • Protect from cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.

    Soil:

    • Use a well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter.
    • See our Earth's Coir soilless potting medium (fine mix) for optimal growth. Avoid peat based mixes.

    Fertilization:

    • Feed with a balanced, slow release fertilizer.
    • Reduce feeding in fall and winter when the plant's growth slows down.

    Repotting:

    • Repot every 1-2 years in the spring to refresh the soil and provide more space for growth.
    • Choose a pot that is 1-2 inches larger in diameter than the current one. Keep in mind this is directional, some plants outgrow their pots sooner and may need repotting every 6 months or so.

     

    By following these care tips, your variegated Alocasia Dragon Scalewill thrive, adding a touch of exotic elegance to your indoor space. Perfect for plant lovers looking to expand their rare plant collection, this stunning Alocasia is a testament to nature's artistry.
