This careful blend has some fantastically aligned behaviours that compliment alocasia, vermiculite becomes our best friend for storing moisture then slowly and delicately releasing it back into the mix. The addition of bark increased surface areas throughout the blend which both acts as microbial hotspots for beneficial bacteria and fungi but also makes the general pH just slightly lower, which is the goldilocks for the meaty and sensitive roots of Alocasia- this heightened moisture is also coupled with activated charcoal to fend off any potential impurities which can lead to browning leaves, rotting roots and improve the immune system of the plant!
Don’t have an alocasia but have another thirsty aroid? Perhaps a xanthostema? A cyrtosperma? Our alocasia mix is for you!
