Plant Bio

Alocasia Polly

Alocasia Polly goes by a variety of names -- African Mask Plant, Alocasia amazonica, and African Shield, to list a few -- but no matter what you call it, this is a striking houseplant that makes quite a statement piece in your home or office.  

Alocasia Polly grows best in medium to bright indoor light, preferring a spot within 3 to 4 feet or so of an unobstructed east- or west-facing window. Don't have a good window? No worries. It also does well under artificial lights. Water as the top quarter to half of the potting mix dries to the touch. Take care not to overwater this Alocasia, as its roots are sensitive to rot if it stays too wet. Average household temperatures and humidity levels are fine, though it appreciates above-average relative humidity when possible.

Note: This plant may have some natural degree of toxicity and may cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Additionally, exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact. Grown for ornamental purposes and not intended for human or animal consumption.
