Hardy Elephant Ear Maintenance

In warmer months, keep the soil moist but ensure it doesn’t become waterlogged – reduce watering when it’s cooler or if the plant goes into dormancy.

It’s crucial to get watering right when caring for your Alocasia Wentii, too much water can cause root rot and too little could cause it to wilt, and potentially die.
