Alocasia Melo care
Indirect and bright light is the best condition for Alocasia Melo to grow strong and healthy because it is the closest thing to its natural habitat. Avoid low light conditions.
Just like the majority of Alocasias, these plants don’t tolerate wet feet. Thus, avoid overwatering and never let the oil get soggy.
In dry environments, consider adding a humidifier in the surroundings. Moreover, you can try mild misting, pebble-water tray under the pot, or plant grouping.
Nevertheless, Alocasias will not require any added nutrition in fall and winter.
Use well-draining soil because Alocasia Rugosa grows in rocky terrain.
Make sure you have high humidity before having an Alocasia or it will die.
You can increase your humidity with a humidifier and grouping plants
