Often the most beautiful ornamental indoor plants are the biggest a$$holes. This is why I have a love and hate relationship with Alocasias. After killing one, I’ve got Alocasia care down to a science. The most important thing for this is the soil you plant it in. Don’t use soil straight out of a bag — always add perlite and some bark too. This plant needs a lot of air pockets, lots of indirect light, and humidity of up to 50-70%, good quality balanced nutrients, and a good source of water.

I am growing it in leca this time and I only use filtered water and boy it makes a tremendous difference. Not jinxing it though.🤞🏻🙏🏻

spider web

A spider feels the universe through its legs, which touch the key strands of its web. It knows when it’s raining, or when food is available. It doesn’t think to itself! “That’s not a fly on the web. That’s rain,” Yet it knows. The spider doesn’t deliberate about what kind of fly it would like to eat or criticize the rain for trying to deceive it. It does what it does, effortlessly and spontaneously.
