Alocasisa ‘Stingray’: Plant Overview

The Alocasia macrorrhiza ‘Stingray’ has been granted such a name due to the elegant and glossy leaves it displays, reminiscent of a beautiful stingray gliding the ocean floor. Native to Southeast Asia, this tropical plant will add mystique and style to your home. 

Its characteristic dappled stems are eye-catching and offer more panache than the average plant. Under the right conditions, it can grow 1.2m tall, making it a wonderful stand-alone specimen. Unusually, it prefers to be watered with warm water meaning it has moderate care needs. Yet, it’s well worth the extra care and attention because it is a rare and beautiful plant. 

Key Benefits: Air Cleaner and Mood Booster

Stingrays are natural air filters. They can clean pollutants and chemical gases that are present in the home. It’s also a mood booster as it brings vibrancy to a room and produces natural chemicals which improve productivity.

Alocasia macrorrhiza: Carpe diem!

Alocasia Stingrays are symbolic of seizing opportunities, even when they are risky. Is this significant to you?

How To Care For Your Snake Plant

  • Light: Stingray plants grow best in indirect sunlight. You should avoid placing it in positions of direct sunlight as it will likely cause scorching on the leaves. 
  • Water: Unusually, water this plant with warm water. Be sure to keep the soil moist, especially during the spring and summer when the plant is growing. However, be sure not to overwater. Little and often is a good approach. 
  • Fertiliser: During its growing season, you can feed this plant once a month with a slow-release fertiliser.
  • Repotting: Repot if you notice roots growing out the bottom of the pot, also if the plant’s growth slows. Younger plants will grow more quickly and may need repotting as often as twice a year, but this will slow as the plant matures. 
  • Propagating: It’s simple to propagate Alocasia ‘Stingray’ by dividing its rhizomes or offsets. You can also take cuttings from the root stem.
  • Temperature: Keep in warm, ideally at room temperatures between 18°C and 22°C. In the winter months, you may want to move it away from drafty windows. 
  • Humidity: As a tropical plant, Alocasia ‘Stingray’ likes humidity and will appreciate a regular misting with clean water.

Alocasia 'Stingray'  - Common Problems and Questions

Why are the leaves of my Alocasia 'Stingray' yellowing?

This is commonly a sign of overwatering. With too much watering, the roots can sit in water and begin to rot. This then prevents the roots from being able to uptake vital nutrients from the soil environment. Yellowing leaves can also be a symptom of nitrogen deficiency. Remedy this by adding a mulch of new potting soil to the surface of the pot and water in, or feed with a liquid soluble fertiliser. 

Why are there browning tips on the leaves of my Alocasia 'Stingray'?

With Alocasia ‘Stingray’ being a tropical plant, browning leaves is likely to be a symptom of low humidity or scorching from direct sunlight. You can increase humidity by regularly misting the leaves with clean water in a spray bottle, or moving the plant to a more suitable room in the house, such as the bathroom where humidity is higher. Also, be sure that the plant isn’t receiving direct sunlight from any south-facing windows. It’s programmed for dense tropical environments where it can be shaded by other plants.
