Alocasia prefers fertile, humus, moderately moist, well-drained and drained soils. A suitable substrate is a universal substrate. The site should be bright, but not exposed to direct sunlight. The plant feels best at a temperature of around 18-21 degrees C. He loves high air humidity, so it is necessary to gently sprinkle it with soft water. The plant cannot be poured over or dried. In winter, watering should be significantly reduced. From spring to autumn, we feed the alocasia every two weeks with multi-component fertilizer. Younger plants are transplanted in spring each year, in older plants it is enough to replace the top layer of the substrate.
The plant is sold in a pot with a diameter of 6.5 cm. Plant height measured with the pot is approx. 10 – 15 cm.
