•Elephant Ears plants need higher moisture levels in the soil and environment, but indoor plants can be watered less frequently.
• Watering frequency depends on the size of the plant, humidity levels, and rate of growth.
• Overwatering is a common mistake made with indoor plants; they are more tolerant to underwatering than overwatering. Improper watering can result in fungal issues and root rot.
• Monitor your houseplants and water them when they need it instead of on a schedule. The objective is to keep the soil moist without overwatering. Use a moisture meter as a guide.
• Water recommendations for 6 inch pot plants: every 4-7 days; 10-12 inch pot plants: every 7-12 days
LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS -
•Alocasia plants do best in medium to bright indirect light.
• They can scorch in direct sunlight, so it's best to keep them under shade outdoors or in a bright spot indoors.
• Complete darkness is not recommended as the plant won't be able to photosynthesize without any light.
•The Elephant Ears Plant originates from the tropics, where humidity is very high.
• Generally, the air in our homes is dry. Misting our houseplants occasionally is a simple and effective way to boost humidity.
• An easy solution to the risk of overwatering your plants is to pay attention to the color and texture of their leaves. Plants with brown or dry leaf tips will benefit from regular misting, preferably in the mornings so that their foliage can completely dry out during the day.
