Alocasia 'Dwarf Amazonica,' also known as Alocasia Amazonica 'Polly,' is a compact hybrid plant that belongs to the Araceae family. It is a popular houseplant characterized by its striking, arrow-shaped leaves with deep green veins and wavy, scalloped edges. The plant is native to Southeast Asia and is often grown for its ornamental appeal.


  1. Potting mix: Prepare a well-draining potting mix made up of equal parts peat moss, perlite, and compost. This mix will provide the necessary nutrients and aeration for your Alocasia 'Dwarf Amazonica.'

  2. Container: Choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging. The pot should be at least 2 inches larger than the plant's root ball.

  3. Planting: Place the Alocasia 'Dwarf Amazonica' in the center of the pot, and fill in the potting mix around the plant, leaving a 1-inch gap below the pot rim. Water thoroughly after planting.


  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect sunlight, as direct sunlight may scorch the leaves.

  2. Temperature: Maintain a temperature between 65°F and 75°F (18°C and 24°C) for optimal growth.

  3. Humidity: Alocasia 'Dwarf Amazonica' thrives in high humidity. Aim for 60-80% humidity by using a humidifier or placing a tray with pebbles and water under the pot.


  1. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch.

  2. Fertilization: Feed your Alocasia 'Dwarf Amazonica' with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season.

  3. Pruning: Prune any yellow or brown leaves to maintain the plant's appearance and promote new growth.

  4. Pest control: Inspect your plant regularly for signs of pests such as spider mites, aphids, or mealybugs. Use a gentle insecticidal soap or neem oil to treat infestations.

  5. Repotting: Repot your Alocasia 'Dwarf Amazonica' every 2-3 years or when the plant becomes root-bound.


  1. Air purification: Alocasia 'Dwarf Amazonica' helps to purify indoor air by removing pollutants such as benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene.

  2. Ornamental appeal: Its unique, eye-catching foliage adds a touch of tropical beauty to your home or office.

  3. Low-maintenance: This plant is relatively easy to care for, making it suitable for both beginner and experienced gardeners.
