Alocasia Amazonica Care Tips
Water And Humidity
Just like most plants in the tropical rainforest, ALOCASIA AMAZONICA requires constant watering and a humid environment for healthy growth. Soil should be kept moist and warm at all times during summer and spring. During the winter season, less water is required as the plant will enter a dormant state.
Excess watering during this period can lead to root rot. The soil has to be a little dry during the winter season as this will help prevent root rot.
Also, avoid leaving the plant under draft and harsh weather conditions. Using a humidifier to keep a moist environment is the best practice during this period.
Distilled water is the preferred choice when watering as their roots are sometimes sensitive to some things found in tap water.
Light And Temperature
Just like most plants in the rainforest, the ALOCASIA AMAZONICA loves and needs bright and indirect sunlight for healthy growth. Placing the plant in a window area Just like most plants in the rainforest, the ALOCASIA AMAZONICA loves and needs bright and indirect sunlight for healthy growth.
Placing the plant in a window area with access to light is good but also make sure that it is not placed under the harsh sun.
Despite having dark foliage, they love bright lights as they tend not to perform well in low light or dark environments as this might force them into a dormant state. You can either use a grow light or place them in locations with access to sunlight such as windows, sheltered balconies, etc.
Placing the flowers under room temperature is ideal, although warmer conditions won’t be an issue as long as you are keeping the temperature above 65°F to prevent the plant from entering into its dormant state.
Most home plants love soil types that are loose and well-draining for better water Most home plants love soil types that are loose and well-draining for better water retention and drainage.
A compact soil mixture sometimes prevents air and other nutrients from getting to the stump and roots of the plant and might not drain water fast enough.
ALOCASIA AMAZONICA prefers its soil to be lightly moist, not wet. The soil mixture should be able to let the excess water drain itself out to help preserve and prevent the roots from rotting.
Use Of Fertilizer
ALOCASIA AMAZONICA doesn’t require frequent fertilizer application. Diluted Organic fertilizer can be applied once a month or every 2 weeks during the process of watering.
The best time for applying fertilizer is during spring and summer as this is the best month for growing alocasia plants. Fertilizer application during winter should be avoided as it risks burning the root as a result of the plant being in its dormant state.
