Alocasia wentii

The foliage of the Alocasia wentii is the first thing you notice - big, broad and pond green with a dark shade of purple on the underside. These striking leaves are held upright by slender green stems which shoot out from a fleshy base. This voluminous Alocasia is a real show stopper and will breathe life into any empty space.

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.
