Alocasia Pseudo Sanderiana

“Heart shaped foliage with scalloped edges, love at first sight.

Water

They are water-loving plants. There is a fine line with these plants. You want to keep the soil moist, but not soggy.  They require and thrive in very humid environments. To raise the humidity around your plant, place it on a tray filled with pebbles and then add water until it rises to just below the bottom of the pot. Keep them away from cold drafts from windows, doors, and air conditioning.

Light

Bright indirect sun is what I find best for it. The leaves changes its color signaling you that its getting the wrong amount of light. Leaves should be dark green and shiny. They tend to get thin, and faded with lack of light and gets burned with too much. Observation is key.

Propagation

Most Alocasia plants can be propagated by clump rhizome division. Cut off a piece of the underground rhizome and pot it up separately. Keep it warm and moist until new growth begins.
