Plant Features

The Mythic™ Dragonite™ Alocasia, with its dramatic and exotic appearance, is a stunning houseplant that adds a tropical flair to any indoor setting. This Alocasia variety is known for its large, arrow-shaped leaves, which are a deep green with prominent veining, creating a striking visual effect.

Caring for the Mythic™ Dragonite™ Alocasia requires a bit of attention to its tropical needs. It thrives in rich, well-draining soil and needs consistent moisture without being waterlogged. Over-watering can lead to root rot, which is a common issue with Alocasia plants. It's essential to let the topsoil dry out slightly between waterings. The plant prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch its leaves, while too little light will lead to leggy growth and fewer leaves. A room with east or west-facing windows is ideal, providing bright light without the harsh intensity of direct afternoon sun.

Temperature consistency is vital, with a preference for warm environments away from drafts. A common problem with Alocasia is drooping or yellowing leaves, often due to over-watering, low humidity, or temperature stress. The plant appreciates high humidity, which can be provided through regular misting, a pebble tray, or a humidifier. Fertilizing should be done with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer, diluted to half strength, every four to six weeks during the growing season.
