Looking for a spectacular houseplant that really catches the eye? It’s hard to go wrong with the genus Alocasia, especially a relatively recent cultivar known as Alocasia amazonica ‘Polly’. All of the flair of its parent plant, Alocasia amazonica, but in a more compact package perfect for smaller spaces!

Light

Alocasia Polly 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.

Water

Alocasia Polly enjoy weekly watering sessions and frequent misting, keeping their soil moist but not wet. In winter, we recommend allowing the top 2’ of soil to dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering and root rot. This plant is not drought tolerant, and extended periods of dryness will cause leaf edges to brown.

Humidity

Your Alocasia Polly will also appreciate being placed in a humid environment, which you can create by misting it frequently, placing it close to other plants or on a pebble tray partly filled with water.

Temperature

Your Alocasia Polly will thrive in temperatures ranging from 18-25ºC. Avoid abrupt temperature changes and cold drafts.

Fertiliser

Feed with general houseplant fertiliser monthly during the growing season (spring to summer).

Toxicity
Alocasia Polly is toxic to both people and animals - keep away from small children and pets
