    Maintenance Notes: 
    • For optimal performance, keep at 60-85°F (15-29°C).
    • Feed once per month at half strength when plant is actively growing.
    • Protect furniture when watering.
    • This Alocasia needs sunshine for best growth, so give your plant the sunniest spot you can indoors. You may need to use a grow light during dark winter months, or move them to a sunnier window during that time.
    • It prefers to be consistently moist, but not wet and needs to have good drainage. It can't take wet soil, but also doesn't tolerate dry soils well. A well draining soil is necessary and the plant should not be allowed to sit in water. Allow the top inch or so to dry out before watering again.
    • All-purpose potting mixes with additional orchid bark and perlite added is a beneficial medium for Alocasias.
    • It is happiest when grown between 60 and 85 degrees.
    • Alocasias also would appreciate higher humidity, so break out that humidifier. 
    • If your plant drops it's leaves don't give up. (These plants like very consistent conditions overall when it comes to watering, temperature, and light.)  Alocasias grow from bulb-like corms and can sprout new leaves under the right conditions.
