    Care info

    Sun: The Alocasia Polly thrives in medium or bright, indirect light. Sunlight filtered through curtains and proximity to a bright window will keep it happy. For the best growth, rotate your Alocasia often and keep it away from direct sunlight.

    Water: Keep soil slightly moist, watering after the soil has dried three inches. The Alocasia Polly doesn’t mind drying out briefly in between waterings, though this tropical plant should never go through a drought. Reduce watering frequency during fall and winter.

    Air: Mimic a tropical environment with temperatures between 65º-85º and a high moisture content. Provide a regular boost of humidity by:

    Misting the leaves 3-5x per week with non-tap water
    Adding a humidifier nearby
    Creating a pebble tray that lives underneath the pot
    Placement in a bathroom or kitchen, if lighting is suitable

    Spiritual Interpretation

    Alocasias are said to reach toward heaven due to their quick growth toward the light. This liveliness is a symbol of ambition and resourcefulness. Tending to this reminder in your home brings daily encouragement to reach beyond silver linings.

    Ancient Feng Shui practices suggest placing your Alocasia at the front and center of your home harnesses this encouraging energy into your career and life path.
