Alocasia Frydek Variegata is a beautifully variegated collector’s dream! Its leaves are a gorgeous deep green in colour with eccentric, contrasting white variegation. Its foliage is velvety soft in texture with dramatic, white veins. This Aroid is a highly desirable, rare collector’s plant, so make sure to get your hands on one before it sells out!
Alocasia Frydek Variegata needs more light than other Alocasia to thrive due to its variegation. The more white its leaves, the more light you will need to provide it with. A bright indirect light position is a must to keep this plant thriving. Alocasia require high humidity levels of at least 60%. For instance, a humidifier, pebble tray or grouping plants together can help you raise humidity.
Make sure to give your Alocasia the best head start at your home with our Alocasia Potting Mix, which we developed specifically for these plants and will help them grow better and faster.
Alocasia Frydek Variegata can undergo winter dormancy like other Alocasia. So, during the winter months, you should water it less if it stops growing. Between March and October, fertilize your Alocasia regularly and keep in an environment of 18–24 degrees.
Put your Alocasia in a spot with bright indirect light.
While Alocasia are rather thirsty, too much water can cause root rot and ultimately lead to the death of your plant. This is why you should never let your Alocasia sit in water (e.g. standing water in the saucer). When the top 3cm of soil are thoroughly dry to the touch, it is safe to water again.
Please note: Jewel Alocasia as are far less tolerant of constantly wet soil than the other, thinner-leafed Alocasia varieties. Be particularly careful not to overwater them!
Alocasia tolerate moderate humidity of around 50%, but they will thrive better and grow faster in higher humidity from 70%+.
Use our soil-less and well-draining Alocasia potting mix if you want to make your Alocasia truly happy! Alocasias love it airy around the roots, so a loose and ideally soil-less mixture will work wonders.
All Alocasia are toxic to humans and animals when ingested.
