The Alocasia Frydek is a stunning variety that displays velvety dark green leaves with stark white veining. It has grown in popularity throughout the years and is now commonly grown indoors as a houseplant.
As with most types of Alocasia, keeping the Frydek happy can be a bit tricky, but its stunning foliage makes the challenge oh-so-worth-it.
Light: These beautiful plants require bright, indirect light. Ensure they do not get exposed to direct sun.
Water: Water thoroughly once the top 1 to 2 inches of soil is dry, allowing the excess water to drain from the bottom of the pot. The amount of water that this plant needs will vary greatly throughout the year, so ensure you are watering based on soil dryness rather than sticking to a rigid schedule which could result in over-or under-watering.
Misting: Alocasia thrives in high humidity environments. Be sure to mist regularly to stimulate new growth.
Pet Toxicity: Alocasia plants are toxic to pets. Typically, ingestion will result in swelling of the lips and tongue, and stomach irritation with possible vomiting.
