    Alocasia sinuata prefers evenly moist soil, but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out slightly between waterings. It's important to not let the plant sit in standing water.


    This plant prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch its leaves, so it's best to place it near a window with filtered light or under sheer curtains.


    Alocasia sinuata likes high humidity, so it's a good idea to mist the leaves regularly or place a humidifier nearby. You can also place the plant on a tray filled with pebbles and water, which will increase humidity.


    Feed Alocasia sinuata once a month with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season (spring to autumn).

    Pests & Deficiencies:

    Alocasia sinuata is susceptible to spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Check the plant regularly for pests and treat them with a pesticide if necessary. Yellow leaves can indicate a nutrient deficiency, which can be corrected with a balanced fertilizer.


    : Alocasia sinuata can be propagated from division or from stem cuttings. Simply cut a stem that has a few leaves attached and plant it in moist soil or water. New roots will form and the plant will grow. In summary, Alocasia sinuata is a low-maintenance plant that likes evenly moist soil, bright, indirect light, high humidity, regular feeding, and occasional misting. Keep an eye out for pests and yellowing leaves, and propagate the plant through division or stem cuttings.
