Alocasia Regal Shields
I will be happiest indoors where I can get bright, indirect light such as near a south or north-facing window. Make sure that I receive bright light daily but that rays of sunlight do not hit my leaves. I tend to grow in the direction that I am receiving light.
Indoors in a Floridian home, I will be happy in an environment that is controlled around 77° F (25° C). Make sure that I am not in direct line of contact to air conditioning or heating vents. I would not like to receive cold or hot air blown at me.
I am resistant to wind, so feel free to place me in my container on balconies, terraces or backyards as long as I have some shade. I will not be as happy in direct or full sun.
- Your plant's soil should be maintained evenly moist. Water about once a week to keep soil evenly moist but never soggy
If your plant gets too much water, it will drip water from the tip of the leaf, so keep an eye out for that and adjust your watering.
