Watering needs

Keep the soil consistently moist during the growing season (spring and summer), but avoid waterlogging. Water when the top inch of soil feels slightly dry. Reduce watering frequency in the cooler months.

Soil type and pH requirements

Well-draining, aerated soil with organic matter. A mix of potting soil, perlite, and peat moss is suitable. Ensure good drainage to prevent waterlogging, especially in Singapore's rainy season.


Propagate by dividing rhizomes during repotting. Ensure each division has healthy roots and leaves, and plant in well-draining soil. Provide appropriate care to newly propagated plants to encourage establishment.


Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half-strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season. Adjust frequency based on the plant's growth and condition. Avoid fertilizing during periods of dormancy or stress.


Use a pot with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging. Repot every 1-2 years to refresh the soil and provide room for growth. Ensure adequate spacing to accommodate the plant's rhizomatous growth habit.

Pruning requirements

Trim yellow or damaged leaves with clean, sharp scissors to maintain plant health and aesthetics. Regularly remove debris from around the plant to prevent pests and diseases.

Disease and pest resistance

Alocasias are generally resistant to diseases, but excessive moisture can lead to fungal issues. Ensure good air circulation and avoid overwatering to prevent root rot and leaf diseases.
Watch for pests like spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs, which may thrive in Singapore's humid conditions. Inspect the plant regularly and treat promptly if pests are detected.

Special Care

Provide adequate air circulation by placing the plant in a well-ventilated area. Regularly wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust and enhance photosynthesis. Monitor the plant closely for signs of stress and adjust care accordingly.
