Best Locations For Growing Mirror Face Alocasia
Place Mirror Face Alocasia in an area with bright, indirect light, being mindful not to put it in direct sunlight as this can burn its leaves. Like most Alocasias, this plant appreciates higher humidity and an average room temperature of 65 -75 degrees F. Place it in an area away from pets and children as it is toxic if ingested and may cause skin irritation.
Mirror Face Alocasia Sunlight Requirements
This plant prefers bright indirect light, ideally 6+ hours per day. Avoid exposing the leaves to direct sunlight. Be sure to rotate your Mirror Face Alocasia now and then to ensure equal sunlight and growth on all sides.
Mirror Face Alocasia Care
Plant Mirror Face in a well-draining potting mix high in organic matter. Wash or dust the leaves monthly to increase the light-capturing efficiency and photosynthesis. The use of a humidity tray or humidifier is beneficial during winter months and drier environments; they prefer at least 60% humidity. Remove any yellow or dry leaves to encourage growth. You can repot every few years if necessary, using the next-sized pot with draining holes. The corms of this Alocasia can easily be split and propagated to make several new plants.
Watering Mirror Face Alocasia
Allow the top 2"- 3" of the soil to dry out before watering. Keep the soil evenly moist. Over-watering, wet leaves, and soggy soil make an alocasia plant susceptible to a variety of serious fungal infections. Avoid splashing the foliage when you water as this can cause unwanted spotting.
Feeding Mirror Face Alocasia
Fertilize once a month during the spring and summer with a water-soluble, all-purpose indoor plant food. A fertilizer with a higher nitrogen content encourages foliage growth.
