How to care
How to care
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.
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 extended periods of dryness will cause leaf edges to brown. Water less in winter.
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.
Sad Plant Signs
Yellowing or spotting on leaves: overwatered. Browning edges: dry and under-watered or scorched by direct sunlight. In winter your Alocasia goes dormant so reduce your watering.
Rare & Unusual
Characteristics Limited availability
Native to the rainforests of Borneo and South America, this is an unusual metalic alocasia. 'Cuprea' means 'copper' and refers to the copper tone to the leaves. Alocasia are also in the Aroids family (Araceae), and can be easily propagated in water because they have a semi-aquatic, swamp-dwelling ancestry.
