These beautiful Alocasias have been propagated in home conditions with 60% humidity and at normal room temperature. This is a delightful houseplant which can grow massive leaves with gorgeous signature white veining.

Upon arrival, please allow plant(s) to sit in a warm spot with moderate indirect light. I highly recommend leaving them in their nursery pots for at least a few weeks before repotting to revive them and give them a chance to settle into their new environment. However, they can stay in this size nursery pot until the end of this growing season with no ill effects. If you immediately repot your plant, there will be no way for me to know if any problem that develops is due to potential damage caused by you so any guarantee will be void. PLEASE leave them in the pot they ship in for at least a few weeks.

Allow plant(s) to slowly adjust to whatever light source you plan to provide by moving the plant a little bit closer to said source each day. This is in an effort to help reduce shock.

There is a high likelihood your new plant could be very stressed from shipping. I do everything in my power to mitigate shipping stress, but sometimes it’s unavoidable. Signs of shipping stress could include - though are not always limited to - curled or drooping leaves, discoloration, yellow spotting, crispy tips on leaves, and the loss of some leaves or stems. Virtually all types of shipping stress will rectify themselves within a week or two. During this time of recuperation, you can further ease stress by (1) not using any fertilizers (2) watering with very small amounts of water as opposed to larger typical waterings and (3) keeping the plant away from direct sunlight and heavy drafts or temperature swings. ALOCASIAS IN PARTICULAR are prone to shipping stress. If your Alocasia arrives limp, provide water, warmth, and light and it should recover. However, there is always a possibility with Alocasia that during shipping the stems may fail. If this occurs, remove the corms (bulbs) from the soil to allow them to dry slightly for a few days, then repot in fresh soil and they should send up new growth shortly afterwards! By ordering this plant, you acknowledge this risk and that you are okay with it.
