What is the best light for Alocasia Regal Shields Elephant Ear Plants?

What is the best light for Alocasia Regal Shields Elephant Ear Plants?

Alocasia Regal Shields Elephant Ear Plants perform well in fluorescent light like office buildings or atriums or anywhere away from direct light. They can handle the bright, indirect light found in a northern or partially shaded eastern windowsill. Western or southern exposure would work as long as the plant is away from the window or the window is well shaded. More bright, indirect light will produce more blooms whereas plants kept in lower light conditions will typically flower less often.

How do I water Alocasia Regal Shields Elephant Ear Plants?

Alocasia Regal Shields Elephant Ear Plants likes to stay slightly moist, not too wet or too dry. Too many yellow leaves means the plant is staying wet too often, whereas brown tips on the leaves means it has been kept too dry. They recover well from drying out occasionally. Some owners wait until they see Elephant Ear wilt, making it clear when the plant absolutely needs water. Wilting can also be caused by the plant staying too wet; check the soil condition before watering excessively.

How do I fertilize Alocasia Regal Shields Elephant Ear Plants?

How do I fertilize Alocasia Regal Shields Elephant Ear Plants?

Any all purpose, foliage fertilizer will work for Alocasia Regal Shields Elephant Ear Plants. Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow release fertilizers. Jack's Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick release fertilizer that is mixed with water to quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time. On the other hand, Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow release fertilizer that can be applied while potting and planting. Any type of fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants with the transition to a new environment.

What is the best soil for Alocasia Regal Shields Elephant Ear Plants?
