Sun: Indirect

Alocasia Velvet Elvis plants should not be exposed to direct sunlight, although they can tolerate early morning or late evening sun. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is ideal, as most homes provide primarily indirect sunlight. Optimal placement is in a spot where they are shielded from direct sun for most of the day but still receive bright, indirect light.

Light: Medium - Bright

Alocasia Velvet Elvis plants thrive in bright light, yet they can also tolerate medium light conditions. An ideal medium-light location in your home would be positioned between the middle of a room and a window of regular size. Keep in mind that the growth of your Alocasia Velvet Elvis will be influenced by the amount of light it receives.

Water: When half dry

Alocasia Velvet Elvis plants should be watered when the top half of the soil feels dry to the touch, typically around once a week in an average home setting. However, watering frequency may vary based on seasonal changes, environmental factors, and lighting conditions. It's advisable to err on the side of underwatering and check the soil moisture before watering again. In brighter light, you may need to water more frequently, while in lower light, watering can be less frequent.

Humidity: High

Alocasia Velvet Elvis thrives in high humidity environments. Ensure to mist its leaves daily or place it near a humidifier for optimal growth. While it can tolerate lower humidity levels, inadequate moisture may result in dry, crunchy, or yellowed leaf edges.

Pet Friendly: Caution

Alocasia Velvet Elvis is moderately toxic and may induce adverse reactions if ingested, making it important to keep pets from consuming it, a precaution recommended for all plants. The extent of the reaction correlates with the amount consumed; however, if your pet typically refrains from consuming plants, Alocasia Velvet Elvis can be a suitable addition to your home.

Pro Tip

During Alocasia Velvet Elvis's dormancy in the winter months, where its growth slows significantly and it is prone to leaf loss, move it to somewhere warm and bright, while reducing your watering until it starts growing again in spring. If it has become root bound, repot the Alocasia Velvet Elvis in the spring by planting it into a pot one size up.

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!
