Alocasia ‘Samar Lance’ - Care Practices

  • Light: Bright indirect light. However, compared to other aroids, this plant can tolerate lower lights. 
  • Water: Water thoroughly, allowing the top 5cm of soil to dry in between watering. Do not leave to sit in excess water as it can be prone to root rot. Alocasias will arc their stems if they need more water. 
  • Humidity: Appreciates relative levels of humidity (25%-49%)
  • Temperature: Average from 18°C to 24°C. No less than 13°C.
  • Fertilizer: We recommend a 10-10-10 liquid fertilizer, following a monthly schedule when the plant is actively growing (during spring and summer). 
  • Soil: Use a well-draining, coarse, and organic soil mix, for example, 2 parts perlite, 2 parts orchid bark, 1 part potting soil. 
  • Propagation: Division by separating corms. 
  • Repotting: Ideally, this plant likes to be rootbound, however, it can be re-potted every 12-18 months in a 5cm larger diameter pot each time. 
  • Cleaning Tip: Gently wipe down with a damp cloth to remove dust. Remove yellowing leaves right away. 
  • Toxicity: Keep away from pets and children. Ingestion may cause irritation or vomiting. 

Alocasia ‘Samar Lance’ - Common Problems

Why are their spots on the leaves of my Alocasia ‘Samar Lance’?

There may be spots on the leaves for a number of reasons, so it is important to assess the whole environment of the plant. Perhaps it is receiving too much direct sunlight and the spots are a symptom of sunburn? If so, move it to a spot where the light is indirect. Perhaps it is under attack from pests such as spider mites? If so, identify and treat these. Perhaps your tap water contains too much chlorine? If so, try watering it with rainwater. 

Why do the leaves of my Alocasia ‘Samar Lance’ have brown tips? 

This may be because the humidity is too low. Increase the relative humidity to prevent browning leaf tips. This can be done through regular misting or installing a humidifier. 

Why does my Alocasia ‘Samar Lance’ keep losing its leaves?

As the plant ages, at some point, the leaves will turn yellow and die. Unfortunately, this is a natural process that cannot be prevented. Enjoy your plant as it flourishes and enjoy watching it change over time! 

Signs of Overwatering

New growth becomes soft and brown. Leaves begin to drop. 

Common Pests

Can attract spider mites. 

Can my Alocasia ‘Samar Lance’ take full sun?

It is advised to keep your Alocasia ‘Samar Lance’ out of direct sunlight, as it can be prone to sunburn.

Shipping and Returns

We can ship to anywhere within Canada. However, it may take longer for you to receive your products if you live in a remote region, such as the Eastern Provinces, especially as we ship from BC.

Please allow up to five business days for your plant to be delivered. If you live in one of the Eastern Provinces, this may take slightly longer, typically around seven business days.

Please also note that tax rates vary dependent on province. These too will be calculated at checkout to comply with provincial laws.

We are happy to return any defective items you may have received. Please get in touch with our customer service team at info@bloomboxclub.ca and they will be more than happy to assist!

If your item is found to be defective or damaged, you will be entitled to a full refund. In many cases, we will not require the item be delivered back to us, however, in some circumstances we may request that this it is. If this is the case, our customer service team will gladly help you through this process.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
