Care-wise, Alocasia hate to dry out. You don’t want them to sit in saturated soil, but be sure to water thoroughly to reach all their roots as soon as the top of the soil is dry. These prefer a very bright spot outside of direct sun, and whilst they aren’t overly fussy with humidity, they do benefit from a more humid environment. Fertilise heavily Spring through Autumn to continue its insane growth.
