The Alocasia Stingray is an exotic plant that originates in Southeast Asia. This lovely, evergreen plant is renowned for its large leaves and long upturned tale, closely resembling a stingray. As such, the plant most certainly fits its name.
This alocasia, also known as the Elephant Ear Stingray, is becoming more popular amongst plant-lovers. This is largely due to how unusual and rare the plant is. Also, it does not require much care. Although the Alocasia Stingray is an easy plant, it is sensitive to temperature and humidity.
Alocasia plants make for lovely indoor houseplants. As previously mentioned, they do not require too much care or attention to grow. When given the right growing conditions, these beautiful stingray elephant ears are sure to flourish.
Light: Alocasia Stingrays love bright but indirect light. In the Northern hemisphere, for the most optimal growing conditions, place your plant near an illuminated east or south-facing window.Ensure that the sunlight is filtered if it’s right by the window., or place it a few feet away.If your elephant ear is outdoors, ensure that it is sheltered from the midday sun. With that said, you can let your plant receive direct sunlight for about an hour per day, provided it is not too intense.Some morning sunlight near an east-facing window would be best in this case.
Watering: During its growing season (spring and summer), it is important to water your Alocasia regularly.During winter, however, the plant does not require as much water so it is advised that you cut down watering to a minimum. Water regularly but in small amounts.A good rule of thumb is to only water your ray when the top surface feels dry. Just ensure that the water is room temperature.Pour water until you see the excess coming out through the drain holes. Repeat this one to two times a week.
Keeping the soil moist is important, however, make sure that the soil does not get soggy or soaked – this can result in root rot.
