The Ultimate Plant Care for Alocasia

 

Photographs are representative of the species and not always of the specific plant shipped. Normal variations in size, pruning and leaf structure may occur.

Sun: Indirect

Position your Alocasia Frydek away from direct sunlight exposure. While it can tolerate early morning or late evening sun, the optimal conditions involve filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain. Most homes naturally provide indirect sunlight, making it an ideal environment for your Alocasia Frydek. Place it in a spot where it avoids direct sun exposure for the majority of the day while receiving bright, indirect light to ensure its thriving growth.

Light: Medium - Bright

The Alocasia Frydek flourishes in bright light but is also adaptable to medium-light conditions. Optimal placement for medium light would be in the center of a room with a standard-sized window. You can position it anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Keep in mind that the growth of the plant is influenced by the amount of light it receives.

Water: When half dry

Keep your Alocasia Frydek thriving by watering it when the upper half of the soil feels dry to the touch. In a typical home setting, this tends to occur approximately once a week. Factors like the season, your specific surroundings, and the available light can influence this timeframe. To ensure the best care, err on the side of caution and confirm soil dryness before reaching for the watering can. Remember, it's generally safer to slightly underwater than overwater.

Humidity: High

Alocasia Frydek thrives in higher humidity levels. Provide a daily misting or as frequently as possible to create a favorable environment. Another option is placing them near a humidifier. While they can endure lower humidity, be mindful that insufficient moisture might result in dry, crunchy, or yellow edges on their leaves.

Pet Friendly: Caution

The Alocasia Frydek has a moderate level of toxicity, and ingesting it can lead to adverse reactions. It's important to prevent your pets from consuming it, a precaution we recommend for all plants. The extent of the reaction depends on the amount ingested. If your pet usually avoids nibbling on plants, the Alocasia Frydek can still be a suitable and stylish addition to your home.

Pro Tip

During winter dormancy, move Alocasia Frydek to a warm, bright spot, reduce watering. Come spring, consider repotting into a larger container if needed.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
