Pablo The Alocasia Portodora

LIGHTING FOR YOUR ALOCASIA PORTODORA

Pablo likes medium to bright indirect light. He doesn't like too much direct light as this will burn his leaves in the summer.

WATERING YOUR ALOCASIA PORTODORA

In the summer from March to September keep Pablo's soil moist, we recommend watering twice a week. Watering Wednesday and Soak Sunday.

In the winter from October to February reduce watering to once a week. Houseplant watering guide

Moist but not soggy is what you're aiming for.

HUMIDITY FOR ALOCASIA PORTODORA

Pablo likes room humidity to be around 60%. Normal room humidity is around 40-50%. To increase humidity you can use a Humidifier, place Pablo next to other houseplants or you can fill a saucer with pebbles and water, place Pablo on top of this.

FERTILISER FOR YOUR ALOCASIA PORTODORA

From March to August you can give Pablo some houseplant fertiliser every two weeks when watering. This isn't a necessity.

REPOTTING YOUR ALOCASIA PORTODORA

When the roots start to grow out of the bottom opening of the pot, it is time to put Pablo into a larger pot. For soil, we recommend a good draining soil.
