A classic houseplant Alocasia amazonica "poly" is making a huge comeback after cultivation had halted. We absolutely love this plant for its distinct foliage and rapid growing pattern.
With most Alocasia you want to provide plenty of bright light. This could be dapple direct sun for about 1-2 hours such as morning light or just if you had a room that is bright filtered light for a majority of the day. Because they do like as much filtered light as they can get, Alocasia will naturally shift their orientation towards the light. Sometimes, if an Alocasia has more of an if your plant is drooping or has an 'umbrella' effect it is not always necessarily an indicator of being thirsty but an attempt to position itself to catch the most light. Overhead light will keep these nice and perky! They will like to dry out roughly 2-3" in the soil between waterings. When repotting, use a coarse well-draining soil.All of our plants are ethically sourced from certified U.S. nurseries. We strongly condemn the poaching of plants or wild collection.
