Q.How To Keep Alocasia Happy During Winter?

Zone 06238 | c.wunshine added on March 19, 2021 | Answered

I have a beautiful little alocasia plant that does super wonderful during the summer but always seems to suffer when I bring it inside for winter. I have many other house plants that I keep in great condition pretty easily but this one has always evaded me. I’ve left a picture to show the unfortunate condition it’s in. I’d love any and all advice on how to make it feel any better! Thanks.

It, likely, gets overwatered during the winter! This appears to be the case.

Make sure that the soil has plenty of time to dry out, thoroughly, down to about 1 or 2 inches, between watering. This may require a meter, but you will be able to do it without one as long as you check with your finger. Don't let it dry out any more than that, but don't let it stay wet, either.
