Trying my hand at propagating Alocasia corms! I’ve got some in perlite and some in just water. I also transplanted two teens from my new mama Alocasia. Wish me luck!
0ft to light, direct
12” pot with drainage
Last watered 3 days ago
Yey! It’s so fun. 🀩 I just started some about 6weeks ago maybe and they have roots and starting to get their first leaves on some not all of my corms.
@nellz4estfairyz that’s awesome! When did you start seeing some growth? I’ll be anxiously watching these like a hawk. πŸ˜‚
@Briska I think there were roots at 3-4 weeks. I used a heat mat at night an put the container in the sun during the day. It was full of condensation so I didn’t think it would be too much sun, but it was nice and warm.
@nellz4estfairyz I’ve got these in an East upstairs window and they are inside plastic containers, so the greenhouse effect should be adequate I hope. I do have a heat mat though so I’ll use that if necessary. Thanks for the tip!
@Briska when I got mine, the weather was super cold here and my house is a little drafty. So I think it really helped. Idk if I still need it. But I’m actually still using the heat mat at night for all my plants that are rooting.
@nellz4estfairyz I use heat mats for my peppers and my tomatoes, because those are the most finicky seedlings, and they have to be warmer than the others, the peppers do anyway. Before I knew they even made plant heat mats, I just used a regular heating pad. It worked great though! 😁
