We have a thing for velvety foliage. Alocasia frydek has beautifully distinct foliage with a velvety sheen. This cultivar does not get too large like a majority of Alocasia. Though the large leaves can be very stunning!
Alocasia will need bright filtered flight to really thrive. They will naturally shift their foliage orientation towards the strongest source of light. Sometimes, if an Alocasia leaves look like they are 'bowing' or the foliage is making an 'umbrella' shape this can be an indicator that it is not getting enough light. In general, they will like to dry out roughly 2"-3" from the top of the soil it is rooted in. This may roughly every 10-12 days depending on your home environment. When repotting, use a semi-coarse soil that will drain water well.All of our plants are ethically sourced from certified U.S. nurseries. We strongly condemn the poaching of plants or wild collection.
