A tropical beauty, a very showy plant, with a skin-alike leaf texture, and sweet scent. It can attract everyone who cares about aesthetics. However, it is enough to start pouring cold tap water on it, unsuccessfully turn it towards the sun's rays or constantly rearrange it in different places - and the flowers will simply droop and fall off. Never place it on west or east windows, keep the room temperature at 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees Fahrenheit) and protect from drafts. If you follow the growing recommendations correctly, then this beauty will be able to decorate any interior of the house!

An interesting plant that is very popular among ornamental ferns. This fern does not tolerate direct sunlight, it feels best in partial shade, so northern or eastern windows are an excellent option. Cannot tolerate high temperatures, over 22 degrees Celsius (71.6 degrees Fahrenheit). Air humidity should be high, within 80-90%. In the room where the flower is located, it is often necessary to carry out wet cleaning, since the plant does not tolerate dust. Also, no tobacco smoke and maidenhair should not be placed in the kitchen. The air in this room is very heavy for him; provided long stay in such conditions, the plant will die.

Its name translates as “ivy-like tree”. The best lighting will be partial shade, but if the flower has a pattern on the leaves, then more light will be needed than monochromatic.

This exotic tropical plant is recognized as one of the best deciduous ornamental plants. Although in home cultivation it is quite rare. The warm and humid microclimate is perfect for it. Direct sunlight is very harmful, so it’s better to shade the flower. Avoid drafts - alocasia does not tolerate them at all. In summer, the leaves need additional moisture, so try to spray them as often as possible.
