Also known as the Dwarf Elephant Ear, the Alocasia Gageana hails from South East Asia. It likes bright indirect light – too much direct sun can scorch its leaves but too much shade will see it struggle.
Give it a water when the top layer of soil starts to feel dry (if the pot feels light, this is another sign it’s in need of a drink). Drain any excess water to avoid root rot.
These plants like humidity – bathrooms are a great spot for them. Alternatively, a use of a mister or humidifier will keep it healthy.
