Alocasia 'Polly' | Alocasia x amazonica

Growing Pot Size: 10cm

  • Toxic to pets and humans if ingested

Care level - Moderate to Difficult

This beautiful hybridised plant does have greater care needs than some alternative houseplants. This is because it likes its environment to mimic the natural habitat from where it came. This entails providing it with enough light, warm temperatures and above-average humidity levels for it to thrive. Winter is not this plant’s friend!

Alocasia 'Polly' - What does she symbolise?

Also known as the African Mask Plant, Alocasias are symbolic in Eastern cultures for seizing opportunities. Carpe Diem! 

Where is it from?

This is a plant that is native to tropical Southeast Asia. 

Plant Care Tips: Alocasia 'Polly' 

  • The Alocasia ‘Polly’ likes bright light, but no direct sunlight. It will benefit from being in a shaded position for a good part of the day in the summer. 
  • When it comes to watering, little and often is the best approach. This plant likes to be in soil that is routinely moist. 
  • Alocasia ‘Polly’ loves humidity, above average for most plants. Mist frequently with clean water for best results. If it needs reinvigorating, pop it near the shower or in the kitchen for a while.
  • She needs to be kept warm! Normal room temperature is ideal - between 18-22°C. Avoid cold draughts from windows and take special consideration in the wintertime. 
  • Apply a slow-release fertiliser once a month during the growing season.

Pets: Toxic to cats and dogs if ingested. Keep away from hungry plant nibblers!

Why are the leaves of my Alocasia ‘Polly’ turning yellow and brown around the edges?

There are two probable reasons for this happening. Firstly, it could be due to overwatering. This plant loves to sit in moist soil, but this doesn’t mean soggy. Use your finger to test the moisture content of the soil every time before you water it and try keeping it evenly moist. Secondly, the plant could be too cold. This beauty loves warmth and even the roots will appreciate higher temperatures. When watering, ensure that the water temperature isn’t too cold. 

How Tall Does It Grow? 

Under the right conditions, Alocasia plants can grow at a fast rate, we’re talking about reaching 30-60cm tall. Slow, stunted growth is a sign of an unhappy plant in poor conditions. To maximise growth, provide bright indirect light, warmth and humidity. You can regularly mist the plant with clean water in a spray bottle to easily increase moisture levels in the air. 

Is this plant susceptible to pests?

Unfortunately, Alocasia plants are susceptible to Spider Mites, Mealybugs and Aphids. Keeping humidity high will be protective against infection. In cases of infection, isolate the plant and treat it with an insecticidal soap spray.
