Plants do not need too much water over their roots. If planted with deep growing waterlilies etc make sure that the pots for this alocasia are raised and the plants do not submerge too much.
Plants spread quickly. They will more or less stay contained in the pots. So you can limit growth by limiting the size of the pot.
Repotting every 2nd or 3 rd year will keep plants looking healthy.
