Alocasia Odora

Alocasia Odora Care Guide


Alocasia Odora prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions but will thrive and show better growth in bright, filtered light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves and cause them to develop brown spots or edges.


Water Alocasia Odora when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Use room temperature water and water thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain away. It's essential to avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. Ensure that the pot has drainage holes and remove any excess water from the saucer after watering.


Maintain high humidity levels, ideally between 60-80%. Use a humidifier, pebble tray, or mist the leaves regularly to increase humidity, especially in dry indoor environments.


Keep Alocasia Odora in a warm environment with temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C) during the day and no lower than 60°F (15°C) at night. Avoid placing the plant near cold drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations, which can cause stress and leaf damage.


Feed Alocasia Odora with a balanced, water-soluble houseplant fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a fertilizer that is high in nitrogen to promote lush, green growth. Avoid fertilizing during the winter months when the plant is dormant.


Alocasia Odora is considered toxic to pets and humans if ingested. It contains calcium oxalate crystals, which can cause irritation and swelling of the mouth, tongue, and throat. Keep out of reach of children and pets, and wash your hands after handling the plant.

Additional Care Information

Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix to ensure good aeration and prevent waterlogging. Rotate the plant regularly to ensure even growth and prevent it from leaning towards the light source. Prune the plant occasionally to remove any yellow or damaged leaves and encourage new growth.


Yellow Leaves: Yellowing leaves may indicate overwatering, underwatering, or low humidity. Adjust your watering routine, check the soil moisture, and increase humidity levels. Brown Tips or Edges: Brown or crispy leaf tips can be caused by dry air, inconsistent watering, or excess fertilizer salts. Maintain proper humidity levels, adjust your watering routine, and flush the soil periodically to remove excess salts. Leaf Drop: Leaf drop can be caused by temperature stress, overwatering, or sudden changes in light conditions. Ensure the plant is in a stable environment with consistent temperature, water the plant appropriately, and avoid moving it frequently.
