Humidity

The Alocasia Baginda plant remains happy in humid environments.

Light

The Alocasia Baginda dragon scale needs bright filtered sun exposure. However, they are resistant to partial shade. We always recommend rotating indoor potted plants frequently. This will ensure equal distribution of sunlight to all parts of the plant.

Soil

The Alocasia Baginda, just like its other family members prefer moist and well-drained soil. A chunky ‘standard Jungle mix’ or ‘Aroid mix’ is suitable. Sandy and rocky soil are not suitable for this plant.

Temperature

The Alocasia Baginda dwells great between 55 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. However, the thick-leaved jewel alocasias are not frosted hardy. It is always better to transfer the outdoor plant to a warm area before the arrival of fierce frosty winters. Furthermore, be careful to save the plant from drifting near a window. Direct contact with electric appliances like heaters, air conditioners, or fans is also harmful to the plant.

Watering

The Alocasia Baginda plant and its other family members are native to rain forests. Thus they need frequent watering. However, over and under watering, both are unsuitable for the plant. In summer, a water frequency of two to three times is suitable. However, in winter reduce the frequency to once a week.

Fertilizing

The Alocasia Baginda dwells great by adding a ‘slow-release fertilizer’. Water-based fertilizers are also good options.
