Alocasia Micholitziana 'Frydek' Variegata, aka Variegated Alocasia Frydek, is a stunning, rare variety of Alocasia that catches the eye with its striking variegated foliage. Its glossy, arrow-shaped leaves are a deep green colour, contrasted by dramatic, white to cream variegation that follows the veins of the leaf, providing an artistic flair. The leaf undersides are a deep burgundy, adding another layer of colour contrast. This plant's impressive size and intricate leaf design make it an exceptional focal point in any home.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

Pro tips

They prefer a warm, humid environment and don't do well with sudden temperature changes. It's also sensitive to salts in tap water, so using filtered or rainwater can help prevent leaf browning. Fertilize lightly during the growing season, and reduce feeding during the winter months.

Care Guide

How to take care of Alocasia Frydek Variegata

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

Allow the top quarter of the soil to dry before watering again. This usually takes about 3 - 4 days in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.
