Comprehensive Care Guide for Your Alocasia 'Regal Shields'

Light Requirements

Prefers bright, indirect light to maintain its vibrant foliage. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, so filtered light is best.

Watering Requirements

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Overwatering can lead to root rot.

Humidity & Temperature

Loves high humidity and warm temperatures between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Use a humidifier or mist regularly to increase humidity around the plant.


Fertilize every four to six weeks during the growing season with a diluted liquid fertilizer. Reduce fertilization in fall and winter.


Repot in the spring if the plant becomes root-bound or the soil seems compacted. Use a well-draining soil mix to prevent water from accumulating around the roots.

Common Problems & Solutions

  • Yellowing Leaves: Can indicate overwatering. Reduce watering and ensure the pot has adequate drainage.
  • Brown Leaf Edges: Often a sign of low humidity. Increase humidity levels around the plant to keep it thriving.
  • Pests: Watch out for spider mites and aphids. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.


Propagate by division during repotting. Separate the rhizomes with care and pot them into separate containers with appropriate potting mix.
