Alocasia wentii
Gorgeous air purifier
Without a doubt, this is one of the most beautiful Alocasias. This Alocasia cucullata, or hooded dwarf elephant ear, has shiny leaves and dark stalks. The leaves of the elephant's ear are shiny dark green on top and purple-brown underneath. This jungle plant needs high humidity. Always keep the soil moist, without letting the plant stand in water. Spray the leaves at least once per week. This prevents the leaf edges from drying out. The Alocasia prefers moderate sunlight and so it should be placed in partial shade. During the summer, this plant can be set out on the patio or balcony as a container plant. The air-purifying plant grows towards the light. Turn the Alocasia occasionally so it continues to grow straight upwards.

How to plant the Alocasia in a pot?
This houseplant is delivered in a standard growers pot. It’s best for the growth of the Alocasia to plant it in a decorative planter. Select a pot that is at least 20 percent larger than the growers pot.

Cover the bottom of the decorative planter with a layer of potting soil. Does the decorative pot have a hole? Then start with a layer of hydro grains, so the water can drain away. The Alocasia should be 1 to 2 cm below the rim. Remove the growers pot and place the plant in the middle of the decorative pot. Fill the pot with fresh potting soil and press it down slightly.

How to take care of the Alocasia?
The Alocasia is a real jungle plant you have to water regularly. Try to keep the soil slightly moist and check this every now and then by pressing your finger into the soil. The plant should certainly not be standing in a layer of water.

Good air humidity of 60 to 70 percent is also important. Otherwise, the leaf edges may dry out. When the air is dry, spray the leaves once or twice a day. Also make sure the Alocasia remains in partial shade.
