Caring for Alocasia species

    Plants love water—but don’t drown them. That is, they don’t like to sit in water, and they’ll die if the soil is too wet in winter. The ideal soil is rich and loose, with good drainage. One of the worst mistakes you can make is to not provide adequate drainage.Use mulch.
    They do not do well in the dark and need good lighting if inside the house.

Typical uses of Alocasia species

Special features: Versatile ground cover. Good cover for bulb beds. Effective on slopes or banks to stabilize soils and prevent erosion.

Ornamental use: They are typically grown as pot plants, but a better way is to grow the plants permanently in the controlled conditions of a greenhouse.
