Plant care

Alocasia cuprea is a house plant which can be placed outside in summer. Use airy soil and keep it well-moistened. The plant is easily pleased, but its ideal temperatures are between 16 and 22 degrees Celsius. Temperatures between down to 10 and up to 30 degrees Celsius are still acceptable for this plant. Pick a bright or partially shaded spot. Too much light makes the leaves turn yellow.
