Urban Sprouts

Polly Alocasia

(Listing for Plant Only, Shop Pots and Planters)

Tall | Interesting | Extravagant

With its big, spectacular leaves and propensity for fast growth, Alocasia loves to be the centerpiece in the room!

The large, uniquely textured leaves grow steadily upwards and outwards, each leaf growing larger and larger over time. New leaves grow in as the plant matures, filling out its canopy but remaining dedicated to growing each leaf as large as possible. 

Propagate easily by placing a cutting into water and allow to root.

Lighting: Bright indirect, no direct

Water: Allow the top two or three inches of the soil to dry out between waterings. Keep soil evenly moist, avoiding any water buildup.

Soil/Potting: Plant in a rich, organic soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits

Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recomended for steady growth and to promote flowering

Temperature: Room temp, protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter. Do not allow to get hot. Keep away from vents.

Toxicity: Contains oxalate crystals which are toxic to humans and pets.
