Lighting for your Alocasia

Frank likes medium to bright indirect light. He doesn't like too much direct light as this will burn his leaves. He will also tolerate shade and low light conditions but, he does need a chance to get some sunshine throughout the day.

 

Watering your Alocasia Plant

In the summer from March to September keep Frank'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

Use rain or distilled water to make Frank extra happy.

Humidity for your Alocasia Plant

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

 

What fertiliser should I use for my Alocasia

From March to August give Frank some houseplant fertiliser every two weeks when watering.

 

Repotting your Alocasia

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