Tropical, striking, exotic are three words on Polly's plant CV. Thats right, she comes from a beautiful part of the world and she is mainly native in the Philippines. Just like your steamy kitchen at dinner time, with frozen peas on the boil. Polly loves humidity, so make sure she gets more humidity than your kitchen extractor fan.

Lighting for your Alocasia Polly

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

Watering your Alocasia Polly

Water when the top 2-3cm of the soil is dry. Polly likes her soil being moist but not soggy, she loves the summer but in the winter make sure her soil dries out almost completely before watering again.

 

Humidity for your Alocasia Polly

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


Fertiliser for your Alocasia Polly

In the summer months fertilise Polly every month. Too much fertiliser can cause her leaves to develop yellow spots.

Repotting your Alocasia Polly

When the roots start to grow out of the bottom of Polly's pot its time to repot. Only repot in the summer months. 


Plant care Problems

  •  In the winter Polly will drop some of her leaves. This can cause alarm but don't worry she becomes dormant in the winter.

  • Yellow spots and yellowing leaves can be caused by root rot from prolonged soggy soil.
