Planting & Care
1. Planting: No planting required! Remove your Alocasia from its box and style it how you'd like - with its bamboo stand, classic hanging macrame or in a ceramic pot.
When you remove your Alocasia, check the moss ball for dryness and water if it is dry.
Place it an area with partial sun to partial shade (about 3 to 6 hours of sunlight per day).
2. Watering: To water your Alocasia, remove it from its stand and place it in a small bowl with about 2 inches of filtered water. Water when the bottom of the root system ball is dry.
You'll know when it's dry based on its weight - lightweight moss balls are ready to be watered!
When you place it, the water is absorbed up through the moss ball in about 15 minutes. After you allow excess water to drain, place it back on the tripod. Typically, you will 'water' weekly or twice weekly.
Keep your plant in its dish until you see bubbles.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilizing isn't necessary, but you can feed with an all-purpose water-soluble fertilizer (20-20-20) once a month, or give it a splash of watered-down coffee or fish emulsion.
You can still order, but due to cold weather, we have delayed shipping to the areas shaded on the map below. We want your new plant to thrive right out of the box, so we will wait on shipping your order until the weather is ideal. This includes anyone in
