The plants thrive best with a constantly moist soil. "a little less in the winter, a little more in the summer, but preferably no large quantities at once. The Alocasia also likes it when it is sprayed very regularly.
If you give the plant too much water, the alocasia perspires the moisture away and drops can get on the beams, this so-called "guttation" disappears by giving less water.
The alocasia thrives best in sunlight. So place the plant near a window. Not enough light and the plant will grow its leaves towards the light.
Administer some liquid food once a month during the growth period. Fertilizing is not necessary in winter.
