Plant care

The elephant ear likes a bright spot, but can also grow in a partially shady spot. Direct sunlight doesn'T benefit this type, as it will soon become too warm which can damage the leaves. Alocasia x calidora likes a moist soil and its roots should not dry out. So, water it regularly, for example with a dish under the pot. Mist the plant regularly to ensure higher humidity. In winter the plant absorbs less water. Keep the ambient temperature below 20 degrees Celsius. The soil must retain moisture and can be rich in nutrients. In the growth period the plant can be given nutrients once every two weeks to accelerate the growth. Araflora offers a variety of soil mixtures which are perfect for Alocasia.
