This little baby requires high humidity for good growth. Choose a location with partial to full shade and organic-rich, well-drained soil. They are very cold sensitive. Alocasia will adjust its size according to the amount of sun it receives. The more sun it receives the smaller it will be, the less sun it receives the larger it has the potential to become.
It's important to note that these plants go dormant in the Wintertime but they do come back strong in the Spring.
WE RECOMMENDED PLANTING IN...
When looking for a pot for your Green Velvet Alocasia choose one that is 2-5cm larger than what it is currently potted in. If you are to re-pot straight into another pot make sure it has draining. Alocasia love the drainage and air circulation of our Mr Kitly self-watering pots. The 12cm Alocasia is best planted in a 17cm Mr Kitly pot and the 17cm size in a 21.5cm pot.
If you'd like us to do the dirty work for you simply request your plant to be potted into your chosen pot and we'll take care of the rest!
*Note: The plant shown is an indication of how healthy and fabulous all of our hand selected plants are! Your plant may not be the exact plant pictured but it will be of the same quality.
