Your Alocasia will thrive in a spot with bright,indirect, filtered light. Never allow this plant to stand in the direct sunlight—the leaves will burn. If you don’t have an ideal location for your Alocasia, use a grow light.


Water your Alocasia when 25-50% of the soil volume is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer. Alocasia is susceptible to root rot, so avoid overwatering.


Your Alocasia prefers a humid environment so mist often. Mist the leaves regularly using a mister, place a humidifier nearby, or use a pebble tray to raise the humidity.


Your Alocasia prefers warm temperatures between 65–85°F. Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.


Feed every month in the spring and summer with half-strength, all-purpose indoor plant fertilizer. No fertilizer is needed in the fall and winter months. Before applying, make sure the soil is damp to avoid burning the roots.


Alocasias are mildly toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.
