Alocasia Jacklyn is a recently discovered aroid that is a highly sought after by plant collectors alike. This plant began as a bizarre mutation of Alocasia Portei that was isolated and reproduced for plant lovers to add to their collections. We recommend providing strong filtered light for your Alocasia and watering as soon as the soil is dry.
Alocasia will grow beautifully outdoors, but they are not winter hardy and should be brought inside once temperatures dip below 55 degrees. Spring through Fall, keep your Alocasia in Full Shade and make sure it is not receiving any hot, direct sun. Water once your plant has had a chance to dry out, usually about every 4-6 days with moderate temperatures. You may need to water your Alocasia every 2-3 days during periods of extreme heat.
