The " Alocasia Polly" Story - Alocasia Amazonica ‘Polly’ has such deep, glossy green leaves that they look black. A robust rhizomatous evergreen perennial with dark green, narrowly arrow-shaped, wavy-edged leaves, adorned with ribs and margins marked in bright creamy white. This stunner adds the wow factor to any collection.
Size - Medium-size. 12-24" tall (including pot).
Light - Prefers bright, indirect lighting conditions, but it can also withstand partial shade. Direct sunlight must be filtered through a sheer curtain, as it can burn its delicate leaves and damage the plant. Indoor plants can be rotated to make sure all parts get plenty of light. A window facing north, east, or west can be suitable for this rainforest beauty.
Water - it is recommended to water two or three times per week. During winter, you can reduce the watering frequency to once a week. Always make sure that the upper 3 inches (7 cm) of the soil dry up between watering. Soggy soil will certainly cause other plant problems.
On the other hand, if you water it too less, Alocasia will become dry and droopy. If the air in your home is too dry, you can use an indoor humidifier.
Preferred Rooms - Just about any room with a table or desk.
What comes with your plant - Includes its own 6" Recycled container and care instructions.
