One of the most beautiful and difficult to care for Jewel Alocasia, Alocasia nebula is a rare and high maintenance plant that will reward all of your efforts with dark green, silvery, thick leaves with impressive veining. It looks wildly exotic, and so are it's care requirements. Alocasias are among the most alien-looking houseplants you can get your hands on.
Give your Alocasia nebula plenty of indirect light, but avoid direct sunlight at all costs. Its delicate leaves are very prone to sunburns, and you definitely don’t want to sacrifice their majestic beauty. This plant needs the soil to be somewhere between semi-moist and semi-dry. This means watering quite often, but not with a lot of water. Then, I wait for the soil’s top to become dry to the touch and water again.
