Alocasia 海芋屬


Nothing stands unchanged, that's the only rule that stands

Plant grows, with different paces, affected by species, plant health, various environmental factors and more. It would be great to acknowledge extra spaces that's needed when your plant is grown. If you have really limited spaces, Aglaonema pictum is an option you should not omit. Not only it grows slowly and vertically, its dark forest green, lime and grey-white variegation brings a stunning camouflage leaf. What's more, Aglaonema pictum is probably one of the easiest indoor plant in terms of its low maintenance and ability to thrive under varying environmental condition.

想種好海芋 需要有充足光照,見乾見濕淋水 To grow healthy Alocasia, they need adequate light, and watering should be done when the soil is dry.

忍手唔好成日淋水、忍手唔好落(重)肥、忍手唔好俾太多光、忍手唔好噴葉、忍手唔好幫佢加到太濕、忍手唔好太早分株。 Constraint yourself from watering too frequently, from heavy fertilizing, from providing too much moist and from providing too much brightness to facilitate its growth. Weird isn't it?


散射光 Indirect light


Brighter environment would definitely facilitate its growth, and Aglaonema pictum doesn't usually encounter with very bright indoor. But if you wish to have vivid camouflage leaf, you may consider to keep it away from brighter area, but not a closet without light or it would easily revert. If someday you find your Aglaonema pictum looks pale, try a dimmer place.

相對濕度 Relative humidity


Leaf may gets curvy sometimes when air is too dry, but this quite rarely gives burning leaf edge. I'd say it's okay not to worry about air humidity if you are growing an Aglaonema pictum in Hong Kong.

疏水嘅介質 Airy potting mix

介質者,眾人所曰泥也。(唔係扮唔扮專業嘅問題,只係’介質‘真係比起‘泥’精准,因為除咗’泥’之外,仲有好多好好用嘅種植介質。) 適合嘅介質係成功嘅一大半,但係點先算係適合,其實唔止係睇植物,仲要睇照顧植物嘅人。無錯極致疏水嘅介質的確唔易爛根,但係相對淋水同施肥都密左。所以喺考慮介質組合嘅時候,記得要考慮埋自己,咁先更加可以享受到種嘢嘅樂趣。

Potting mix is what we meant soil, just a more precise description ingredient extends beyond soil. Anyway, potting with the right mix makes your planting life much easier. When we come to deciding the right mix, make sure you put yourself into the equation, find the potting mix that keep your roots from rotting yet keep yourself from providing full-time care. That's how I have an enjoyable journey to plants.
