The African Black Shield Plant (Alocasia Polly) is a beautiful member of the Elephant Ear family.
Water: When you water your Alocasia Polly, make sure you provide enough water so that liquid flows from the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and into the saucer. It’s extremely important to discard any excess water in the saucer and not to let your plant sit in any standing water. Your plant doesn’t like “wet feet,” which will cause the roots to rot and lead to the eventual death of the plant. Yellow and browning leaves are the first sign that root rot may be occurring.
Providing proper and consistent soil moisture is important in caring for your Alocasia plant. Alternating between bone dry and wet soil from ill-timed waterings can create stress and cause your plant to yellow. This is not a drought-tolerant plant.
Light: Alocasia plants grow best when placed in bright indirect sunlight, but they will tolerate medium light. When exposed to direct sunlight for too long, the foliage will burn. While Arrowhead Plants can adapt to medium light areas, their growth may slow. If placed in very low light, yellow leaves may develop.
