Wentii Alocasia is more commonly known as Elephant Ears, and once this stunner reaches full size, this alternate name will make sense. Broad leaves come to a pronounced point and grow on tall, thin stems. Alocasia is a humidity-loving plant, and as long as this plant is in an area with the right amount of light and humidity, it will thrive. Wentii Alocasia will grow to be a large, statement plant that can quickly overtake an area, so choose a location needing lush foliage that can handle a large plant.
Best Locations For Growing Wentii Alocasia
Alocasia Wentii can grow indoors, but it prefers a spot with medium light and increased humidity. This stunner can start rather small but will be 2 to 3 feet tall once mature with impressively large foliage, making it a good floor plant or a good choice for a spacious area.
Wentii Alocasia Sunlight Requirements
Wentii Alocasia needs medium indirect light. The large foliage can handle limited amounts of direct sunlight either first thing in the morning or later in the day, but indirect light is ideal. Bright light can be damaging and low light may prevent this beauty from reaching its full potential.
Wentii Alocasia Care
Perhaps the most essential part of caring for Wentii Alocasia is providing humidity. In nature, this tropical plant lives in areas with increased humidity, and you’ll need to provide similar conditions for this plant to thrive in your home. You can still feature Alocasia in your home if you live in a dry climate, but place the plant on a pebble tray with water or near a humidifier to give the foliage the moisture it craves.
Watering Wentii Alocasia
Water Wentii Alocasia when the top inch of soil is dry. This plant has medium water needs and likes damp conditions, but it doesn’t want to be soggy. Feeling the soil is a good way to gauge the dampness and ensure the plant needs a drink. Saturate the soil when watering until excess water drains through the pot.
Feeding Wentii Alocasia
Alocasia plants are fast growers that push out significant foliage and need consistent nutrition. Regular fertilizing ensures the plant can support rapid growth and large leaves. Feed Wentii Alocasia in spring and summer using a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two to four weeks.
