Alocasia Regal Shield Care Guide

Light Requirements:

These plants do well in bright environments. They must be kept out of the sun though as this will burn their leaves

Watering needs:

Alocasias hold a fair amount of water in their stems however constant moisure and water is vital to their life cycle.

High humity is always best for these tropical plants coupled with a good amount of air flow.

Fertilizing:

Try and fertlize an Alocasia at least every two to three weeks in spring and summer and hold back in the winter which is usually their dorman period. An general water soluable fertilizer would do great. 

Soil:

At least every year, you will need to to upsize the pot and give him a fresh mix. They require a well draining soil mixture that has medium moisture retention. 

Staghorn and Pitcher have an excellent, already prepared potting mix which is perfect for this plant. 

Alternatively if you’re brave enough to mix your own, only use a premium potting mix such as the Gromor Potting Soil and it’s always good practice to add in perlite that will assist with good drainage, then coco peat moss, or coir husks that will hold in moisture.
