Fertilization Alocasia cuprea
During this period of the year it's good to fertilize our plants every 15-20 days; letís choose a specific fertilizer, for house plants, flowering or green ones, to add to the water used to irrigate. We should prefer fertilizers rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour flowering and the development of new vegetation.

Watering Alocasia cupreaTenere asciutto
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots.

Exposure Alocasia cupreaPosizione mezza ombra
Let's position the plants where they can enjoy a good source of light,yet avoiding direct sunshine, which could cause antiaesthetic burnings on the foliage. It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.These plants don't like cold weather, therefore in the Spring it is best to set them outside only when the temperatures are above 15įC.

Treatments Alocasia cuprea
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
