    Description

    Alocasia Polly is a must have for every Indoor jungle. Having arrowhead shaped, large dark green leaves with light green silvery veins and wavy edges, Alocasia Polly is commonly known as African Mask Plant or Elephant’s Ear because of the distinct shape and size of its leaves. A single leaf can grow to an extent of 20-90 cm. Its dramatic and striking foliage with veined green top and purplish base of leaves makes it stand out from the other houseplants. Alocasias can grow up to 3 feet tall and do require some extra care.

    Detailed Care Guide

    Light: Thrive in medium to bright indirect sunlight.

    Water: Water once a week or when the top soil gets dry. They like their soil moist at all times, but not wet.

    Pet-friendly: The plant is toxic if ingested.

    Humidity: Loves humidity. Surroundings should be at least 50% humid. Mist the leaves twice daily. If this sound like a lot of work then use a humidifier or place the plant in a shallow tray of water and pebbles.

    Temperature: Thrive in temperature ranging from 60℉-80℉.

    Fertilizer: Feed every two weeks in the growing season. Use liquid balanced ratio fertilizer or fertilizing sticks.

    Repotting: If roots become visible on the surface of the soil or if they start hanging out from the drainage hole then you need to repot your plant. Choose a pot not larger than 2 inches than the original. The soil should be porous. Mix equal amounts of soil, perlite and peat.

    Common Problems

    Yellow Leaves: Alocasia polly turns its leaves yellow due to overwatering or dry spell. To resolve this issue, water your plant after regular intervals and check the soil before watering. If the soil is soggy or wet, do not water. If the soil is dry, it's time to water. After watering make sure that the water drains out completely.

    If the issue is still not resolved, repot your plant and cut off any rotted root, if there is any, and place the plant in a well-draining soil.
