This exotic Alocasia needs plenty of bright light but direct sunlight will damage the leaves.
As with most Alocasias, this plant doesn’t like to be completely dry. Keep the soil moist with warm water but not waterlogged during growing season. Reduce the watering in Winter.
This plant doesn’t like cold rooms, keep it warm. It also needs a moist environment with above average humidity, imitating its natural tropical climate. A way of keeping the humidity high is to group several plants together or by sitting them on a tray of pebbles and water. Misting it frequently with filtered, room temperature water will also help.
