Alocasia 'Regal Shield'

A hybrid between Alocasia odora and Alocasia reginula, Alocasia 'Regal Shield' has deep purple foliage with dark veining. Similar in colour and form to Alocasia wentii, these striking leaves are held upright by slender green stems which shoot out from a fleshy base. 

Watering

In S/S water when 30% of the top soil has dried out. In A/W allow top soil to dry out 70%. Avoid watering too close to the stem of the plant as it is fleshy and can be susceptible to stem rot.

Light requirements

Bright, indirect. This Alocasia likes a lot of light but nothing too scorching. A West or East facing window is perfect, if south facing just watch out on those very sunny days.

Feed

Use a houseplant fertiliser every 2 - 4 weeks from April - October.

Repotting

Repot roughly every 1-1.5 years when there has been active growth. Use a well draining house plant compost with added draining medium like perlite or grit.
