Light: Alocasia amazonica does best in bright indirect light. Be sure to shield your plant from any direct sun as the leaves are delicate and will burn!
Water: Water your Alocasia amazonica when the top 2" of the soil has gone dry. This is not a plant that ever wants to go completely dry! Allowing your Alocasia amazonica to go too dry too frequently can stress out your plant and make them susceptible to pests. Like we said previously, this is a humidity lover! Keeping your Alocasia amazonica in a high humidity area will not only keep your plant happy but will also help to prevent spider mites!
Did you know? Alocasia amazonica grow from tubers, which are a thickened root structure similar to a bulb. If your Alocasia amazonica ever loses all it's leaves don't throw it out right away! Move your plant somewhere cool and dry and after a while you may begin to see new shoots appear! Tuberous plants are extremely hardy, and with a little patience can be brought back from what seems like a total lost cause!
