Alocasia is a genus of broad-leaved perennial flowering plants from the family Araceae (otherwise known as the aroids), containing 97 recognized species that are native to tropical and subtropical Asia and Eastern Australia. Many more varieties of Alocasia exist through hybridization. They range wildly in size, from species that stay compact at just 1 to 2 feet, to plants that grow over 12 feet tall with leaves spanning 3 feet in length.

Light: Alocasia plants prefer bright, dappled light. Since they’re naturally found in the tropics and subtropics under a canopy of trees, try to mimic this environment at home and keep them away from harsh, direct sun. In the Northern Hemisphere, an east-facing window is most ideal, or you can put them near (but not right in front of) a south-facing window.

Watering: It’s no surprise that Alocasias like moisture, but how much and how often to water will depend on the amount of sunlight they get and how humid their environment is. In summer, water your Alocasia plant once or twice a week. In winter, when growth slows down, water when the top 1 to 2 inches of soil feels dry. This may happen every 7 to 10 days, but don’t let the soil go bone dry during the cooler months.
