Wayne Alocasia Wentii Care Guide

LIGHTING FOR YOUR ALOCASIA WENTII

Wayne likes a bit of sun mixed with shade. Not too much direct sunlight that will burn his leaves. In the winter move him closer to the window so he can soak up the sun.

WATERING YOUR ALOCASIA WENTII

Water when the top 2-3cm of the soil is dry. Wayne likes his soil being moist but not soggy. In the winter, reduce watering and only water when Wayne is completely dry.

 

HUMIDITY FOR YOUR ALOCASIA WENTII

Wayne is a tropical plant, he will love a little bit of humidity. Give him a mist every few days or group him together with other houseplants to keep him happy

 

FERTILISER FOR YOUR ALOCASIA WENTII

In the summer months fertilise Wayne every month. 

 

REPOTTING YOUR ALOCASIA WENTII

When the roots start to grow out of the bottom of Wayne's pot it's time to repot. Only repot in the summer months. Wayne is already a big size in a big pot so he will be okay for a couple of years.
