Caring for your Alocasia Frydek

 

  • Provide bright but indirect sunlight. A little direct morning sun will be okay especially if your Alocasia is set back from the window a bit. Intense direct sun can burn the leaves.
  • Water before the potting mix is completely dry. We recommend bottom watering (see General Care).
  • Remove any excess water from the saucer after watering.
  • Alocasia are fairly sensitive to changes in their environment. They tend to droop when stressed but they usually bounce back if you're attentive to their needs.
  • Alocasia love extra humidity and will appreciate being near a small diffuser or humidifier.
  • Plan to water less often during the winter.
  • Fertilize lightly while the plant is actively growing.
  • Not pet safe.
