- Care instructions
LIGHT: Likes indirect, dappled light like its natural habitat under the jungle canopy. The plant will do well on a windowsill out of direct sunlight that will scorch and fade the dark leaves.
WATER: Red Secrets are far less tolerent of moist soil than other thin leaf Alocasia’s. They will usually droop a little when thirsty but be cautious of overwatering. To avoid root rot to let the top 2-3cm of soil dry out between waterings, use a fast-draining potting mix and reduce water during the winter. Wter from the bottom reccommend using perlite.
FEED: Feed once every second watering during the growing period (late spring to midsummer) with a weak feed solution.
TEMPERATURE: Will not tolerate cold temperatures and draughts. It is best to keep them above 15c but to avoid radiators.
HUMIDITY: Like medium to high levels of humidity.
CARE: Clean their leaves with a dry cloth as dust will effect absorption of light and photosynethis process.
