Alocasia Chantrieri is a unique and rare plant species known for its large, dark, and velvety leaves. It is native to the tropical regions of Southeast Asia and is a member of the Araceae family. Here is a detailed care guide for Alocasia chantrieri:

  1. Light: Alocasia chantrieri prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can cause the leaves to scorch, so it's best to place it near an east or west-facing window, or provide filtered light through sheer curtains. If the plant receives insufficient light, it may become leggy and lose its distinct foliage.

  2. Temperature: These plants thrive in warm and humid environments, with temperatures ranging between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid placing the plant near drafts, air conditioners, or heating vents, as fluctuations in temperature can cause stress.

  3. Humidity: Alocasia chantrieri needs high humidity, ideally above 60%. To increase humidity around your plant, use a humidifier, place a tray with water and pebbles beneath the plant, or group it with other humidity-loving plants. Misting the leaves can also help, but be cautious, as excessive moisture may lead to fungal issues.

  4. Watering: Water the plant regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) of soil to dry out before watering again. Use filtered or distilled water, as this plant is sensitive to chemicals found in tap water.

  5. Soil: Alocasia chantrieri prefers well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Use a mixture of potting soil, peat moss or coco coir, and perlite or orchid bark in a ratio of 2:1:1. This will ensure adequate drainage, aeration, and moisture retention.

  6. Fertilization: Fertilize your plant during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength, applied every 4-6 weeks. Reduce or stop fertilization during the fall and winter months.

  7. Repotting: Repot your Alocasia chantrieri every 2-3 years or when it becomes root-bound. Use a pot one size larger than the current pot, with drainage holes, and fresh potting mix.

  8. Pruning: Prune the plant to remove dead or yellowing leaves and maintain its appearance. Use clean, sharp shears to minimize the risk of disease transmission.

  9. Pest control: Inspect your plant regularly for pests like spider mites, mealybugs, and aphids. Remove any infested leaves and treat the plant with insecticidal soap or neem oil as needed.

  10. Dormancy: Alocasia chantrieri may experience a period of dormancy during winter months. During this time, the plant will require less water and may lose some leaves. Once spring arrives, resume regular care, and the plant should bounce back.

Note: Alocasia chantrieri is toxic to pets and humans when ingested, so keep it out of reach of children and animals.

By providing the proper care and environment, your Alocasia chantrieri will thrive, displaying its stunning foliage and adding a touch of the tropics to your home or garden.

    Plastic Nursery Pots: All our plants are supplied in practical plastic nursery pots. If you prefer a more decorative option, we offer a range of stylish pots available for purchase separately.

    Non-Consumable: Please note that our plants are intended for ornamental purposes only unless specifically stated as edible. Ensure you check product descriptions carefully if you are looking for edible varieties.

    Variable Heights: The height of our plants can vary by approximately +/- 10%. This natural fluctuation ensures you receive a unique and healthy specimen.

    Plant Pot Sizes: Pot sizes may vary by approximately +/- 1cm. To ensure a proper fit, we recommend selecting a decorative pot that is 1-2cm larger than the stated plant pot size. For instance, if you purchase a plant in a 17cm pot, a 18 - 19cm decorative pot would be ideal.

    Quarantining: All our houseplants are regularly sprayed with a preventative systemic bug treatment. We do our best to ensure a bug free growing environment however sometimes these can unfortunately be missed, as such we always recommend quarantining plants when they first enter your home and checking them upon arrival for bugs.
