Alocasia gageana 'Variegata', also known as variegated dwarf elephant ear, is a striking variety of the Alocasia genus.

  1. Light: Alocasia gageana 'Variegata' prefers bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves and cause the variegation to fade, while insufficient light can cause the plant to become leggy and can reduce the vibrancy of the variegation.

  2. Water: Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of the soil to dry out before watering again. Overwatering can lead to root rot, a common issue with Alocasias.

  3. Humidity: As a tropical plant, this Alocasia thrives in high humidity. Consider placing it on a tray of pebbles with water, using a humidifier, or misting it regularly.

  4. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix, such as an indoor potting mix with added perlite or orchid bark for increased drainage.

  5. Temperature: Alocasias prefer warm temperatures, ideally between 65°F and 75°F. Avoid temperatures below 60°F and sudden temperature changes.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed your plant during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid houseplant fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks. Reduce feeding in the fall and winter months.

  7. Repotting: Repot your Alocasia when it becomes root-bound, typically every 2-3 years. The best time to do this is in the spring.

  8. Propagation: 'Variegata' can be propagated by division during repotting. Divide the plant into sections, ensuring each section has roots and leaves, and plant each section in its own pot.

  9. Pest Control: Regularly check your plant for common pests such as aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. If you see an infestation, treat it with an appropriate insecticide or neem oil.

  10. Leaf Care: Clean the leaves occasionally by gently wiping them down with a damp cloth. This not only keeps the plant looking its best, but also allows it to photosynthesize more effectively.

Remember, the specific needs of your Alocasia gageana 'Variegata' can vary depending on its specific environment and condition. Regularly check on your plant's health and adjust care as needed.

    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.
