How much water does alocasia need?

Keep the soil moist and water regularly (usually once a week, depending on the temperature and humidity in your home). Overwatering causes wet, dry soil and can lead to root rot and fungal infections. So make sure the soil is moist but not completely saturated with water.

Does Alokazia need fertilizer?

Our plants are grown in greenhouses to grow successfully and comfortably in a home environment so you don't need to fertilize for the first six to twelve months. If you want to add fertilizer later to support new growth, you can fertilize regularly in spring and summer with a standard plant fertilizer diluted to half strength.
