Alocasia melo

GENERAL INFORMATION 

Alocasia Melo is a rare plant native to Southeast Asian woods, especially Indonesia, that grows on rocky terrain, unlike other alocasias. This alocasia is called a tiny plant because, while it may grow up to 23 inches in height in nature, it is uncommon as a houseplant and seldom grows taller than 15 inches. Because of its distinctive leaves, Alocasia Melo is also known as Alocasia Rugosa. Its leaves are green, significant, and thick, with a rough texture that gives it the appearance of a synthetic plant. Because alocasias grow in tropical woods under the shadow of taller vegetation, they should not be exposed to direct sunlight.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

It grows well on soil that is loose, porous, and well-drained. They may also be cultivated in a wet, well-aerated potting mix. The potting soil is composed of one part coarse potting sand or perlite, one part peat, and one part dirt. It can also be used as compost.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

When the plant is actively developing, improve the soil’s fertility by scraping some compost into the top inch or two of soil without disturbing the plant’s roots. Every two weeks, feed the plant a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer, such as fertilizer For Growing, diluted at a rate of 1 teaspoon per litre of water.
