Alocasia lowii 'Bebe'/'Bambino' is all cutesy like a smaller, more compact version of Alocasia lowii 'Polly amazonica'. The extremely glossy, dark green leaves are spear-shaped with broad, bold and white veins. It is a stunning feature plant that you can't keep your eyes off.
For success indoors, it must be in a well-lit position away from direct sun and the potting mix allowed to be drier through the colder months. This is a perfect choice for a tabletop pot plant for the office environment or within your home. If you wish to make a statement this is the plant for you!
Remember he dislikes dryness at the roots, but too much water will cause his roots to rot. The best approach is to water a little but often. In the wintertime move him towards the light 💡 this is the key to keeping your Alocasia happy in the cooler months.

Although Alocasia love moist soil and humid conditions, they respond well to a slight reduction of water in winter. You still water regularly, but give them less water each time.
The air around your Alocasia should also stay relatively humid. Humidifiers are great for this.
From time to time, you might notice house dust on the surfaces of the leaves. You can use water on a damp sponge to wipe the top surface only of the leaves but do this gently and sparingly.
A diluted liquid fertilizer (mixed with water in your watering can) can be added to the soil around once a month to feed your Alocasia, but only while the plant is still growing. Growing season only.
"Oh man, he's dying!" This might not be true. If your plant has been healthy all year but looks as if it is dying in winter, it is entering a natural dormancy phase. This is normal. What happens is that everything above the soil dies off.
Keep caring for what looks like an empty pot because the rhizomes below ground are still alive, and you can expect new growth in Spring.
