How to not overwater your plants

Light Requirements

Bright, indirect light

The Alocasia will thrive in medium to bright, indirect sunlight. Be aware that they are not suited to low light or direct sunlight - which can scorch their leaves.

Watering Schedule

Weekly watering

Keep the soil moist but not wet. Allow top 2" of soil to dry out in between watering. This plant is not drought tolerant and is prone to overwatering. Water less in winter.


High Humidity

Enjoys a humid environment which you can create by frequent misting, placing it close to other plants or on a pebble tray partly filled with water. Will enjoy being in a kitchen or bathroom.

Sad Plant Signs

Yellowing, spotting leaves, browning leaves

Yellowing or spotting on leaves: overwatered. Browning edges or tips: dry and under-watered or scorched by direct sunlight. In winter your Alocasia goes dormant so reduce your watering.

How to not overwater your plants


Finding the perfect plant parent

This stunning Alocasia gets its name from the dark velvety appearance of the leaves, that are actually rough to the touch. The silvery white veins pierce through to create a stunning contrast, making this rare plant an eye catching addition to any plant collection.

Plant Bio

Alocasia Reginula

Native to the jungles of Borneo, this is a very rare alocasia whos regal name translates to 'little queen'. Her silvery veins pierce through large black velvety leaves, which have developed as a light-gathering strategy in the gloom beneath a forest canopy. Alocasia are also in the Aroids family (Araceae), and can be easily propagated in water because they have a semi-aquatic, swamp-dwelling ancestry.
