Check the soil for dampness once a week. If dry, add about a cup of water, keeping in mind that any excess will build up in the bottom and should be avoided. Mist to increase humidity and avoid cold drafts for best results.

Plant Care Guide


Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light as well. Avoid direct sunlight.



Check soil for dryness twice a week. Thrives in a moist environment with high humidity. Water less in winter when plant is dormant.


Level of Care

Needs a little extra care. Just avoid direct sunlight and maintain high humidity.


Air Purifying

Alocasias remove toxins that can build up in indoor spaces. A general rule of thumb is 1 medium houseplant per 100 square feet of space effectively cleans the air we breathe.



Feed with a mild liquid, indoor plant fertilizer about once a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.



Prefers warm conditions 70-85°F. Keep away from drafty windows and air conditioners.



A peaty All-Purpose potting soil with good drainage works best. Be sure the bulbous rhizomes at the base of plant are potted above the soil.


Pruning & Propagation

Prune yellow or damaged stems down to soil level. Leaves will fade or die when plant goes dormant but plant is still alive. To propagate, large plants can be divided in the spring.


Pet Friendly

Sorry! All parts of the plant are considered toxic if consumed.
