Sun: Indirect

Alocasia Ivory Coast prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. Place it near a window with filtered sunlight or in a location with bright, indirect light.

Light: Medium - Bright

Adequate lighting is crucial for the Alocasia Ivory Coast's growth. Ensure it receives consistent, indirect light throughout the day to promote healthy foliage development.

Water: When half dry

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, usually once a week. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

Humidity: High

Alocasia Ivory Coast thrives in high humidity environments. Increase humidity levels by misting the leaves regularly or placing a tray of water near the plant. Alternatively, use a humidifier to maintain optimal humidity levels.

Pet Friendly: Caution

While Alocasia Ivory Coast plants are not considered pet-friendly and can be toxic to pets if ingested, they are safe to keep in homes with pets as long as precautions are taken to ensure pets cannot access or ingest the plant. Keep the plant out of reach of curious pets to prevent any potential ingestion.

Pro Tip

To prevent waterlogging and maintain optimal soil moisture levels for your Alocasia Ivory Coast, consider using a well-draining potting mix and a pot with drainage holes. Additionally, placing a layer of pebbles or stones at the bottom of the pot can help improve drainage and prevent root rot. Regularly check the soil moisture levels and adjust your watering schedule accordingly to ensure the plant remains healthy and thriving.

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!
