PLANT CARE :
- The Alocasia macrorrhiza ‘Stingray’ likes lots of bright but indirect light. Direct sun will burn the leaves. An east or south- facing window is ideal for these plants when grown indoors. Take care when moving the plant from an area with relatively low light to a brighter area. This should be done slowly and in stages to allow the plant to adapt. A sudden move will shock the plant and leave it distressed for some time.
- You want to water regularly but not too much. Use water that is at room temperature and water if you feel the top surface is dry. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
- The ideal environment for the Alocasia macrorrhiza ‘Stingray’ is a hot and humid space. They do not like the cold and will not do well in areas that are not warm. They are also not happy in a draughty area or near air conditioners. The perfect temperature range for this plant is 18°C to 22 °C
