There is a new hybrid in town, Alocasia Tiny Dancer. The dancing petioles make this plant stand out in your garden. Alocasia plants are admired for their stunning foliage. This Alocasia plant is distinguished for its upward-facing, cup-like leaves.

This is a small plant, unlike regular Alocasia plants. But it is gaining popularity because of the unique foliage. The leaf shape of Tiny Dancer resembles Alocasia Cucullata.

According to the International Aroid Society, this plant is awarded as the most unusual aroid. This plant originated from the United States, and it was first introduced in 2013.

This variety of Alocasia needs moderate care to thrive. You should use a well-draining potting mixture that contains peat moss, orchid bark, charcoal, perlite, and potting soil. Add water when the top 2-3″ of the soil surface are thoroughly dry. The indoor temperature should be between 65 to75 degrees Fahrenheit (18.3 – 23.8 degrees Celsius).

Light: This tropical plant can tolerate a range of lighting settings. In my opinion, partial sunlight is the best lighting condition for Alocasia Tiny Dancer. You can keep it in up to 80% shade.According to other gardening experts, Alocasia Tiny Dancer prefers bright filtered sunlight but can also withstand low light. Most growers misinterpret ‘bright indirect light.’ It simply means you should place your plant next to bright light but use sheer curtains if the sun is falling directly.

Watering: This Alocasia enjoys plenty of moisture in the soil; therefore, never let the soil dry out completely. Overwatering is also detrimental for this plant, so be moderate in terms of watering. A good balance for this plant is to water is often but in little quantity. Water your plant thoroughly after planting. But then allow the 2-3 inches below the topsoil surface to reach dryness. The leaves can help you fix your watering schedule; therefore, pay attention to the leaf’s appearance. Yellow leaves mean overwatering, whereas brown tips mean under-watering.
