An Alocasia is both an indoor and an outdoor plant all it needs is the right environment to help it thrive.
As Alocasia originate from the subtropical regions of Asia and Australia if you want your Alocasia to be an outdoor plant then you need to live in an area with similar temperature and weather conditions.
If you do live somewhere that is warm and humid then there is no reason that you couldn’t keep your Alocasia outdoors.
However this doesn’t mean that it can’t also be an indoor plant.
If you do not live in a region where your plant can have its needs met outside in your garden then there is no reason that you can’t keep it indoors instead and it can be kept as an indoor plant.
If you are going to keep an Alocasia indoors make sure that it has a light source, your home is kept warm and if you can offer it any humidity then it will grow successfully.
So in answer to the original question, yes an Alocasia is an indoor plant but it’s also an outdoor plant. You just need to make sure that you provide it with the right growing conditions and it should thrive.
If your plant isn’t in the right conditions it can show you by wilting or developing yellowing leaves. If this is the case then you’ll find yourself asking do I cut off yellow leaves? So to prevent this from happening try to provide it with the right conditions but it you’re enable to don’t worry because your plant will tell you.
The most popular Alocasia that people are choosing to keep as a houseplant it the Alocasia Polly. This plant is rising in popularity due to its almost prehistoric looking leaves. The aesthetics of the leave make it look like something out of this world, like it belongs to the Earth millions of years ago and has no right existing now. Having such an interesting appearance makes it a fantastic houseplant for plant enthusiasts.
If you live in a subtropical region you don’t have to keep your Alocasia outdoors, you can still choose to keep it inside or you could treat yourself and keep some in your garden and some in your home. It all depends how much you love the plant and how much you want it around your home and land.
Personally here at OSERA, we love the Alocasia plant family and can’t get enough of them. If we were based in a warmer area we would definitely be planting these as much as we could.
