How to Grow

Grow Alocasia Lutea in bright, indirect light. It thrives in warm temps above 60°F. Keep soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Mist frequently to boost humidity. Fertilize monthly during spring and summer.

Care Tips

Water when the top few inches of soil become dry. Mist leaves often for humidity. Move to a shadier location if leaves yellow. Bring indoors before temps drop below 60°F.


Alocasia Lutea makes a big statement massed in tropical garden beds or planters. It also shines as a houseplant, accenting living spaces with its vibrant chartreuse foliage.

Planting Tips

Space Alocasia plants 1-2 feet apart in fertile, well-draining soil. Dig a hole twice the container width and backfill with soil. Water thoroughly after planting. Use a quality potting mix for containers.


Remove dead leaves and spent flowers to keep your Alocasia looking its best. Divide congested clumps in early spring. Repot in a slightly larger container.

Pests & Diseases

Watch for aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. Improve air circulation. Treat pests with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Avoid overwatering to prevent root rot.
