  • Botanical Name: Alocasia Amazonica
  • Common Names: Bambino
  • DescriptionThe Alocasia Amazonica ‘Bambino’ has narrow, arrowhead-shaped, green leaves with pronounced white veins. The backsides of the leaves are burgundy.. The Alocasia Amazonica is a unique houseplant but beware that it is on the harder side to care for. It requires bright, indirect sunlight as well as soil that is constantly moist from watering. Toxic to pets.

***Very sensitive to the cold***

Although Alocasias are often touted as low-light plants, don’t make the mistake of placing this plant in a dark corner of your home. For best results, place your plant in front of an Eastern or Western facing window. Windows with no direct sun are fine too, but by all means place it immediately in front of those windows. 

Water your plant thoroughly until water escapes the drainage hole. After watering, wait until the top inch or so of the potting mix has dried out before watering again.

These plants do not like to go bone dry, so try to avoid that at all cost. If your potting mix dries out too much over an extended period of time, it will start to go dormant. Fortunately, they do come back!

Regular fertilization while your plant is actively growing is important.

Like any Alocasia, Bambino likes evenly warm conditions. Aim for 65°-85°F as an ideal temperature range for your plant. Avoid cold and hot drafts, such as those coming from heatling/cooling vents, and keep away from doors and windows during cold weather.
