Alocasia Lukiwan, also known as Alocasia 'Lukiwan,' is a striking and exotic houseplant known for its bold, arrow-shaped leaves and prominent veins. This plant belongs to the Araceae family and is admired for its lush, tropical appearance, making it a popular choice for indoor gardeners.

  • Leaves: The leaves are large, glossy, and arrowhead-shaped with deep green coloration and prominent, lighter green or silvery veins. The underside of the leaves often has a purplish hue, adding to its visual appeal.
  • Size: When grown indoors, Alocasia Lukiwan can reach a height of 0.6-1.2 meters (2-4 feet) and spread about the same width, depending on growing conditions.
  • Growth Habit: This plant grows upright with a clumping habit, producing new leaves from the base as it matures.

Care Guide

Light
  • Optimal Conditions: Alocasia Lukiwan thrives in bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can slow growth and cause the leaves to become smaller and less vibrant.
  • Light Tolerance: It can tolerate some lower light conditions but prefers bright, filtered light for optimal growth.
Watering
  • Watering Schedule: Water regularly to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top 2-3 cm (1 inch) of soil to dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering and root rot.
  • Humidity: Alocasia Lukiwan enjoys high humidity. Regular misting, using a humidifier, or placing the plant on a pebble tray with water can help maintain adequate humidity levels.
Soil
  • Type: Use a well-draining, aerated soil mix. A mix containing peat moss, perlite, and some organic matter such as compost is ideal.
  • pH Level: The soil should be slightly acidic to neutral, with a pH range of 5.5 to 7.0.
Temperature
  • Optimal Range: Keep the plant in a warm environment with temperatures between 18-27°C (65-80°F). Alocasia Lukiwan is sensitive to cold and should be protected from temperatures below 15°C (59°F).
Fertilising
  • Frequency: Feed the plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertiliser every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding during the autumn and winter months when the plant’s growth slows down.
  • Type: Use a balanced fertiliser with an NPK ratio like 10-10-10 or one specifically designed for houseplants.
Pruning and Maintenance
  • Pruning: Prune any dead or yellowing leaves to maintain the plant’s appearance and encourage new growth. Regularly clean the leaves to remove dust and improve photosynthesis.
  • Maintenance: Rotate the plant occasionally to ensure even growth and prevent it from leaning towards the light source.
Propagation
  • Method: Alocasia Lukiwan can be propagated through division. When repotting, carefully separate the offsets (baby plants) from the main plant, ensuring each division has roots. Plant the offsets in individual pots with a well-draining soil mix.
  • Timing: The best time to propagate is during the growing season (spring or summer) when the plant is actively growing.
Pests and Diseases
  • Common Pests: Watch out for spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs. Regularly inspect the leaves and treat any infestations with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
  • Diseases: Root rot is a common issue caused by overwatering. Ensure proper drainage and avoid letting the plant sit in water.
Repotting
  • Frequency: Repot every 1-2 years or when the plant becomes root-bound. Choose a pot that is 2-5 cm (1-2 inches) larger in diameter than the current pot.
  • Procedure: Carefully remove the plant from its pot, gently loosen the roots, and place it in a new pot with fresh soil. Water thoroughly after repotting.

By following this care guide, you can enjoy the exotic beauty and lush foliage of a healthy and thriving Alocasia Lukiwan in your home.
