Alocasia Red Secret, also known as Alocasia Cuprea, is a striking houseplant noted for its metallic, deep burgundy-red leaves with a glossy finish. The unique, shield-shaped foliage features prominent veins, giving it a textured and exotic appearance. This tropical plant is highly prized for its decorative appeal and ability to add a touch of the tropics to indoor spaces.

Light

Prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

Water

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch.

Humidity

Thrives in high humidity (60-80%). Use a humidifier, pebble tray, or mist the plant regularly.

Temperature

Ideal temperature range 18-27°C. Protect from cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.

Fertilisation

Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertiliser every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in fall and winter.

Repotting

Repot every 1-2 years or when the plant outgrows its pot. Choose a pot that is one size larger and has drainage holes.

Pruning

Remove any yellow or dead leaves to encourage healthy growth.

Pests

Watch for common pests like spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs. Treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil if needed.

Propagation

Best propagated through division during repotting. Ensure each division has a few leaves and a portion of the root system.
