The Ultimate Alocasia Growing Guide: Tips and Care Information


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

Alocasia Polly should not be exposed to direct sunlight, although it can tolerate early morning or late evening sun. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is ideal, as most homes provide indirect sunlight. Optimal placement for Alocasia Polly is in a bright location where it receives indirect light for the majority of the day, avoiding direct sun exposure.

Light: Medium - Bright

Alocasia Polly thrives in bright light but can also tolerate medium light conditions. An ideal spot with medium light in your home would be positioned between the middle of a room and a regular-sized window. It's important to note that the growth of plants is influenced by the amount of light they receive.

Water: When half dry

Alocasia Polly should be watered when the top half of the soil feels dry to the touch, typically occurring every week in a typical indoor environment. However, this schedule may vary depending on factors such as the season, environmental conditions, and lighting. To avoid overwatering, it's best to err on the side of underwatering or perform a soil moisture check before watering again.

Humidity: High

Alocasia Polly thrives in environments with high humidity levels. Consider misting them daily or as frequently as feasible to replicate their preferred conditions. Additionally, placing them near a humidifier can help maintain adequate moisture levels. While they can tolerate lower humidity levels, inadequate moisture may result in dry, crispy, or yellow-edged leaves.

Pet Friendly: Caution

Alocasia Polly is considered moderately toxic and may cause adverse reactions if ingested by pets. Therefore, it's advisable to keep it out of reach of animals, as is generally recommended for all houseplants. The severity of the reaction will vary depending on the amount of the plant consumed. If your pet typically does not show interest in consuming plants, Alocasia Polly can still be a suitable addition to your home.

Pro Tip

Alocasia Polly, commonly known as the African Mask Plant, belongs to the Elephant Ear family and originates from subtropical regions of Asia and Australia. Characterized by its striking dark purple/green leaves shaped like arrowheads, adorned with thick, creamy veins, this plant adds a touch of exotic beauty to any space. Despite being a dwarf variety, its leaves can grow up to 30 cm long, creating a dramatic presence. It's essential to note that Alocasia plants are toxic to humans and animals and should not be ingested.

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!
