Alocasia 'Purple Sword' 10In

A stunning botanical specimen with long, spear-shaped glossy dark green and purple leaves. This eye-catching plant can grow between 12 to 36 inches tall, making it a striking addition to any indoor space.

Lighting: Provide your Alocasia with bright indirect lighting to ensure healthy growth and vibrant foliage. Avoid direct sunlight, as it will scorch the leaves.

Watering: This plant prefers slightly dryer soil and is prone to root and crown rot if overwatered. Water when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch, typically every 1 week on average.

Soil: Use a well-draining soil mix to prevent waterlogging and promote healthy root growth. Consider adding perlite or sand to improve drainage.

Temperature & Humidity: Maintain a temperature range of 17°C to 25°C for optimal growth. Avoid exposing the plant to temperatures below this range, as it could cause dormancy. Alocasia thrives in high humidity environments, so consider misting the leaves daily or placing the plant near a humidifier.

Fertilization: Feed your Alocasia with a balanced fertilizer once a month between April and August to provide essential nutrients for healthy growth and foliage development.
