Alocasia ‘Frydek’ Care

Light: Alocasia ‘Frydek’ thrives in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch its leaves. Place it near a north or east-facing window where it receives filtered sunlight or provide artificial grow lights if natural light is insufficient.

Temperature: Maintain a warm and consistent temperature for your plant. Alocasia ‘Frydek’ prefers temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). Avoid sudden temperature drops or drafts, as it’s sensitive to temperature fluctuations.

Humidity: This plant appreciates high humidity levels. To increase humidity, mist the plant regularly or use a humidity tray. Grouping it with other plants can also create a microclimate with higher humidity.

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist during the growing season (spring and summer), but ensure it never sits in standing water. Water thoroughly and allow excess water to drain from the pot. Reduce watering in the dormant period (fall and winter) and let the top inch of soil dry out before watering again.

Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix with organic material, like peat moss, to retain moisture without becoming waterlogged. A mix designed for aroids or tropical plants is suitable.

Fertilization: Feed your Alocasia ‘Frydek’ every 4-6 weeks during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. Do not fertilize during the dormant period.
