How to care for Alocasia Scalprum

Water

Alocasia Scalprum should be watered regularly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.

Soil

Alocasia Scalprum loves a well-draining soil. Perlite and vermiculite help with drainage, while coco coir adds organic matter, so a good potting soil mix will have all three. You can improve store-bought soil by adding some perlite to it.

Sunlight

Alocasia Scalprum may not thrive and may drop leaves if it does not have enough sunlight. Place it less than 3 feet from a window to increase the potential for growth.
