Plant care

Place the Alocasia baginda 'Silver dragon' in a bright spot, out of direct sunlight. The temperature should be between 15 and 25⁰C and a high humidity. During the summer, the plant can also be placed outside, with a minimum night temperature of 10⁰C. The top layer of soil may always dry out slightly before watering again. In the winter, the plant needs less water. The same applies to fertilization, which should be stopped completely in winter. In summer, Alocasia baginda can be fertilized at half strength every two weeks. You can use normal airy flower soil as a substrate. You can find this and other useful growing supplies in our 'Plant accessories' section. When leaves become yellow or have brown spots, remove them.
