Alocasia heterophylla is a tropical plant known for its attractive, glossy, arrow-shaped leaves. It's native to the Philippines and requires similar care to other Alocasia varieties. To keep your Alocasia heterophylla healthy and thriving, follow this care guide:

  1. Light: Alocasia heterophylla prefers bright, indirect light. Place it near an east- or west-facing window or a few feet away from a south-facing window. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water your Alocasia heterophylla when the top 1-2 inches of soil feel dry to the touch. Use a well-draining potting mix and a pot with drainage holes to prevent overwatering and root rot.

  3. Soil: Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix. You can also create your own mix by combining equal parts peat moss, perlite, and potting soil. This mixture will provide a balance of moisture retention and drainage for your Alocasia heterophylla.

  4. Humidity: Alocasia heterophylla thrives in high humidity levels, around 60-80%. To increase humidity, place your plant on a tray filled with pebbles and water, use a humidifier, or group it with other humidity-loving plants. Misting the leaves can also help, but be cautious not to overdo it, as excessive moisture can lead to fungal issues.

  5. Temperature: Alocasia heterophylla prefers temperatures between 65-85°F (18-29°C). Keep it away from cold drafts or sudden temperature changes, as it is sensitive to fluctuations in its environment.

  6. Fertilization: Feed your Alocasia heterophylla with a balanced, liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) at half the recommended strength. Reduce or stop fertilizing during the fall and winter months.

  7. Pruning: Regularly remove any dead, yellowing, or damaged leaves to maintain your plant's appearance and health. Pruning will also help to promote bushier growth.

  8. Repotting: Repot your Alocasia heterophylla every 2-3 years, or when it becomes root-bound. Choose a new pot that is one size larger than the current one, and use a well-draining potting mix.

  9. Pest control: Inspect your plant regularly for common pests like spider mites, mealybugs, and aphids. Treat any infestations with insecticidal soap or neem oil, and quarantine the affected plant from other plants until the issue is resolved.

By providing the proper care, your Alocasia heterophylla should grow and thrive, becoming a stunning focal point in your home or office.

    Tropical Glasshouse Nursery: Our plants are nurtured in our tropical glasshouse nursery located in Lincolnshire, where we maintain an average temperature of 16°C. We do not use cold warehouses, ensuring optimal conditions for plant health.

    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.
