How to Grow

Alocasias can be tricky to grow indoors. It's best to grow them in bright indirect light and give them high humidity. They can be prone to pest pressures when the air becomes to dry or the leaves may dry and crisp.

Most Alocasias are bulbs, some may go dormant.

Alocasias do not like to dry out completely, it's best to keep somewhat moist but do not keep the feet (roots) wet. Let only the top medium dry out before watering.

Fertilize during the growing season; spring and summer. Use slow release or houseplant fertilizer. Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully.
