Product Parameters

Alocasia Longiloba Parameters

Plant Type:

  • Alocasia Longiloba is a tropical perennial.

Growth Pattern:

  • It exhibits a rhizomatous growth pattern.
  • Forms clumps of large, glossy, arrow-shaped leaves on upright stems.

Light Requirements:

  • Bright indirect light is ideal; avoid direct sunlight which can scorch the leaves.
  • Can tolerate lower light conditions but may lead to slower growth.

Watering Needs:

  • Keep soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
  • Allow the top inch of soil to dry out slightly between waterings.
  • Water more frequently during the growing season (spring and summer) and reduce watering in winter.


  • Prefers temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C).
  • Avoid exposing to temperatures below 55°F (13°C) as it can damage the plant.


  • Requires high humidity levels, ideally between 60% to 80%.
  • Regular misting or using a humidity tray can help maintain adequate moisture levels.


  • Well-draining soil mix is essential to prevent waterlogging.
  • A mix of peat moss, perlite, and/or orchid bark works well.


  • Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season.

Potting and Repotting:

  • Repot annually or when the plant becomes root-bound, typically in spring.
  • Use a slightly larger pot with fresh soil mix.


  • Remove any dead or yellowing leaves regularly to promote new growth and maintain plant health.

Pests and Diseases:

  • Keep an eye out for pests such as spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs.
  • Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
  • Ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal diseases.


Can be propagated through division during repotting, ensuring each division has healthy roots and shoots.

  • Special Considerations:
  • Alocasia Gageana can be toxic if ingested, so keep it away from pets and children.
  • Avoid sudden changes in environmental conditions to prevent stress to the plant.


1. Prepare a Suitable Environment:

  • Choose a clean, well-lit area with indirect sunlight for acclimatizing the plants.
  • Ensure the temperature is consistent and appropriate for the specific plant species.

2. Inspect the Flask:

  • Check the flask for any signs of damage or contamination before opening.
  • Ensure the plantlets inside the flask look healthy and free from any abnormalities.

3. Prepare for Transfer:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly and sterilize any equipment you'll use, such as scissors or forceps.
  • Prepare the potting medium suitable for the plant's needs. A sterile, well-draining mix is typically recommended.

4. Transfer the Plantlets:

  • Open the flask carefully, following any instructions provided by the supplier.
  • Using sterile tools, carefully remove the plantlets from the flask one at a time.
  • Gently rinse the plantlets with water to remove any residual media from the flask.

5. Planting:

  • Prepare the planting containers with the potting medium.
  • Plant each individual plantlet in its own container, ensuring the roots are covered with soil and the plant is well-supported.

6. Provide Adequate Care:

  • Place the newly potted plantlets in a location with indirect sunlight to prevent stress.
  • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged, adjusting watering frequency based on the plant's needs.
  • Monitor for any signs of stress, such as wilting or yellowing leaves, and adjust care accordingly.

7. Acclimatization:

  • Gradually expose the plants to longer periods of sunlight over several days to prevent sunburn.
  • Avoid exposing the plants to harsh environmental conditions or sudden temperature changes during the acclimatization process.

8. Regular Maintenance:

  • Maintain a consistent watering schedule, ensuring the soil doesn't dry out completely between waterings.
  • Monitor for any signs of pests or diseases and treat promptly if detected.
  • Fertilize the plants regularly with a balanced fertilizer according to the manufacturer's instructions.

9. Patience and Observation:

  • Be patient with the acclimatization process, as tissue culture plants may take some time to adjust to their new environment.
  • Monitor the plants regularly for signs of growth and overall health, adjusting care as needed.
