Allow it to grow and spread!

These beautiful plants are pretty fast-growing, so choose a spot it can flourish and spread into. Consider repotting every year or two.

Dwarf variety

Alocasia California is considered a dwarf variety, meaning it won't grow to the enormous height (4m+) of some of its relatives. It will however still create a big impact with its huge leaves.

Propagate easily

They are prolific growers, producing babies at the base which can be propagated or left in place for a full and rounded look.

Care tips

Light: Loves bright indirect light, can tolerate some direct sunshine on its leaves, but not too much, as that will burn them. 

Water: This beauty would appreciate having its soil kept lightly moist at all times, but certainly not soaking, as this will cause the leaves to drop or get brown spots.

Humidity: Happiest in a humid spot, like a bathroom or kitchen, although other spaces are fine, it would just be worth misting a couple of times a week, using a pebble tray or keeping near other plants. 

Temperature: Alocasia California prefers temperatures of between 18-25°C to thrive. Avoid draughty spots, which will cause temperatures to fluctuate.
