Note: It's common for Alocasias to lose the outermost leaf and sometimes even two during transit, but no need to worry; a new leaf will quickly grow with the proper lighting.
Alocasias will sometimes go dormant after growing many leaves and blooming. Do not throw away the tuber, you will be pleasantly surprised with the beauty that will regrow again during the growing season.
When you repot, provide it to a chunky and airy potting mix; coco coir, perlite, orchid bark. Check our plant accessories for the ideal potting medium.
Keep in mind you should NOT repot right away; the plant needs to acclimate to your growing conditions, and many plants, including our Alocasia, could grow in its nursery pot for a year at least unless it becomes extremely root-bound.
Alocasias like moist soil but not wet. Give it humid temperatures (60%-80%) and do not expose it to extreme cold, or it may go dormant. To keep Alocasias pest-free, keep them healthy by watering on schedule when the potting medium dries out, keeping a humid environment, and fertilizing when needed (ideally summer through fall.)
