Very rarely the Alocasia Polly might flower with an unusual looking bloom.
Alocasia's have been popular houseplants since the 1950s.
Toxic to humans, cats and dogs, keep this beauty out of reach of children.
Alocasia Polly’s origins are widely disputed and actually unknown due to it being a hybrid. Unlike its Latin name would lead you to believe, none of the Alocasia specifics can be originally traced to the Amazon.
Alocasia generally originated from Southeastern Asia.
Other Common Names:
Amazonian Elephant's Ear, African Mask Plant, Alocasia Poly
Light | Alocasia Polly prefers bright but not direct light (which could scorch their leaves) for perfect growing conditions.
Water | Plenty of water. Keep the soil moist but don’t leave sitting in water. In winter allow the soil to almost dry out, but not completely. To avoid overwatering and root rot, ensure thorough drainage. Loves to be damp, not soggy.
Humidity | Happiest in a humid spot, like a bathroom or kitchen, although other spaces are fine, it would just be worth misting or keeping near other plants.
Temperature | Alocasia Poly prefers temperatures of between 18-25°C to thrive
