Alacosia likes a bright position, but keep out of direct sunlight. It's a tropical plant and needs reasonable, or high humidity.
Compost must be kept moist at all times (not dry or soggy). Dislikes dryness at the roots, but too much water will cause the roots to rot. Water little but often.
Feed during the growing season about once per month.
Perfect choice for a tabletop pot plant for the office environment or bright kitchen or bathroom.
Make sure watering is done once the soil goes dry. Although the soil can remain moist, but it should not turn soggy/wet. Having drainage hole in the pots goes a long way in ensuring there is no water stagnating on top of the soil. You can spray the plant occasionally.
Fertilise the plant once a month in summers however Don't feed any fertiliser in winters. Giving fertiliser to the plant ensures nutrients going in which keeps it healthy. Keep an eye on the leaves of the plant to know any symptoms for watering or sunlight.
