Introduction Of Teacup Alocasia
Teacup Alocasia Planting Information
How to plant your new alocasia plant? The best way to plant alocasia is in soil that drains well. In colder climates, it’s a good idea to dig a planting hole before bringing your alocasia home. It’s also important to remove all of their old soil before adding new, sterile soil around them. Finally, water thoroughly when you get them home and add plant food to help get them off on the right foot.
A balanced fertilizer every couple of weeks will be great for helping these plants grow strong roots and produce more delicious leaves to enjoy. Be sure not to over-water or under-water them; they should be allowed to dry out slightly between watering, but shouldn’t ever appear wilted or distressed (although if they are receiving inadequate light, they may show signs of stress).
A thorough watering once a week during hot months should work fine for most houseplants; deeper containers with more soil can hold more moisture than shallow planters without draining slower than shallower ones. If you see any pests, take care of those quickly! Quick spraying with insecticidal soap will take care of most insect problems like whiteflies and aphids.
Teacup Alocasia Care Tips
Sunlight: Morning sunlight is ideal. Temperature: Average household temperatures are ideal. -Watering: Hand water your teacup alocasia plant only when needed to keep the soil damp but not soggy. Never allow it to dry out. The soil should be moist at all times during the growing season, but never soggy or wet. *General Care* Handle with care; despite their size, these plants are very delicate.
Because of their size, they can easily fall over if bumped or touched by pets or children so make sure you treat them like a flower arrangement rather than a pet that needs attention regularly: once a week is often more than enough because they’re fairly self-sufficient when given proper care!
