Alocasia Melo is a tropical perennial plant native to Borneo. It is known for its distinctive thick, heavily-textured, and heart-shaped leaves that are deep green with a velvety appearance. This plant belongs to the Araceae family and is sometimes called the "Jewel Alocasia" due to its striking foliage. Alocasia Melo is well-suited for indoor container growing or as a houseplant.


  1. Location: Alocasia Melo thrives in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Soil: Plant in well-draining, peat-based potting mix. The soil should be consistently moist but not waterlogged.

  3. Temperature: The ideal temperature range is between 65°F and 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Avoid exposure to temperatures below 60°F (15°C).

  4. Humidity: High humidity levels (60% or higher) are essential for this plant. Place a tray of water near the plant or use a humidifier to maintain humidity.


  1. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid overwatering. Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil feels dry to the touch.

  2. Fertilizing: Feed Alocasia Melo with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

  3. Repotting: Repot the plant every 2-3 years or when it outgrows its container. Choose a pot that is 1-2 inches larger in diameter than the current one.


  1. Pruning: Remove any yellowing or damaged leaves to promote healthy growth.

  2. Pest control: Check regularly for common pests like spider mites, mealybugs, and aphids. Treat any infestations with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

  3. Disease: Alocasia Melo is susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Ensure proper watering and well-draining soil to prevent this issue.


  1. Air purification: Alocasia Melo helps purify indoor air by absorbing toxins and releasing oxygen.

  2. Aesthetic appeal: The plant's striking foliage adds a touch of tropical beauty to any indoor space.

  3. Mood booster: Caring for plants like Alocasia Melo has been shown to improve mental well-being and reduce stress.
