Alocasia 'Portora' 10"

A perennial powerhouse revered for its rapid growth and commanding stature. This impressive hybrid, a cross between Alocasia portei and Alocasia odora, boasts an upright habit and can reach towering heights of 6 to 8 feet, making it a striking focal point in any indoor or outdoor setting.

Lighting: Indoors, the Alocasia 'Portora' thrives in bright indirect light, while outdoor specimens can tolerate full sun conditions with partial shade during intense sunlight periods. Provide optimal light exposure to ensure healthy growth and vibrant foliage.

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged to support the Alocasia 'Portora's vigorous growth. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, ensuring adequate drainage to prevent the risk of root rot and waterlogging.

Soil: Opt for well-draining and airy potting soil enriched with organic matter to create an optimal growing environment for the Alocasia 'Portora' indoors. Good soil drainage is essential to prevent water accumulation around the roots, promoting healthy root development and overall plant vitality.

Temperature & Humidity: Maintain warm temperatures ranging from 18 to 29°C to support the Alocasia 'Portora's growth and development. Additionally, ensure moderate to high humidity levels to mimic its native tropical habitat and promote lush foliage growth.

Fertilization: Feed your Alocasia 'Portora' with a diluted balanced liquid fertilizer every 4 to 6 weeks during the growing season to provide essential nutrients for robust growth and vibrant foliage. Adjust fertilization frequency in the winter months when growth slows, reducing fertilization to accommodate the plant's seasonal dormancy.
