How to use the Alocasia Soil Mix

Using the mix is easy!  start with removing as much of the old soil as possible. Gently squeeze the pot while holding it sideways to loosen up the plant. Run the roots under lukewarm tap water to remove the last pieces and bits. 

Also, make sure to remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Alocasia soil. Add a small layer of Alocasia mix at the bottom of the pot.

Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Alocasia soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Alocasia soil. 

Lightly pat the Alocasia mix down into the pot. Make sure to water the Alocasia mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.

Why the Alocasia mix works

The alocasia mix has vermiculite instead of the more common perlite. This causes the soil to stay wet for longer. Vermiculite holds moisture very well and releases it back into the soil slowly. This makes it easier to keep your alocasia evenly moist and reduces the time you have to water, leaving you with more time to admire your plant!

    The original habitat of the Alocasia plants

    Most of Alocasia originates from the southeast of Asia. They are found on forest floors of subtropical & tropical areas. They love high humidity, heat & constantly moist soil that doesn’t dry out. This isn’t to say that they don’t need drainage, their roots still need to breathe well. This alocasia mix mimics that habitat

    Tip! As Alocasia likes to stay moist, use a plastic or ceramic pot. Clay & other types of pots are porous, meaning they breathe out moisture. Plastic & ceramic contain moisture better. 

    How to care for Alocasia plants

    Alocasia prefers wet soil, they are part of the aroid family but require a bit more humidity and moisture than aroids like photos, philodendrons & monstera. They prefer bright indirect light, but can’t stand direct sunlight. The main issue with alocasia care is inconsistency in the environment, once they are doing well, try not to change their care around too much. 

    Unlike most aroids, Alocasia will not benefit from having a moss pole to grow up to. They are self-supporting plants that grow upright.

      Socially responsible production

      At Sybotanica we not only want to make plants happy, but people happy as well. In our production team we exclusively hire people with a distance from the workforce, and help them rehabilitate to the normal working life.


      Take Peter for example:

      Peter has been with Sybotanica since the 1st hour, and has now been promoted to head of production & a permanent contract! Where he was the first employee, he now manages a team of 3 production workers.

      What makes this achievement even more impressive is that Peter achieved all this with only 10% visibility! 🕶️ With a few minor adjustments to his working environment, Peter is able to perform his job 100%.

      Peter has now been through two moves and knows all the ins & outs of Sybotanica. He can even feel by the potting soil which variety it is. That's quite a challenge with 16 different mixes!

      We are confident that Peter will keep production running smoothly in the coming years too! 💪

            FAQ's

            Not sure if the Alocasia mix is right for your plant?

            Check out the SYBASoil Guide

            How much Alocasia mix do I need?

            Check out this pot volume calculator tool to calculate how much Alocasia mix you need.

            When do I need to re-feed the soil?

            The nutrients in SYBASoil will run out in ~6 months on average. We recommend refeeding by removing the top part of the soil and adding 10-20% of the volume with fresh worm castings.

            How long does SYBASoil stay fresh?

            You can store SYBASoil for about 2 years. Make sure to store it cool, dark and closed off. The effectiveness of the nutrients can degrade over the years. Simply add some fresh worm castings to give the soil new life.

            When do I repot the plant?

            We recommend repotting once any of these things happen:
            - You see roots growing out of the bottom of the pot
            - The soil dries very quickly between watering
            - The plant is top-heavy and wants to fall over
            - Roots are pushing the plant up and out of the container
            - Every 1 to 2 years

            How to recycle SYBASoil packaging

            Our packaging can be recycled at your local plastic recycling facility.

            You can also re-use it for storage, or leave a little soil and use it as a propagation box!

            How to water plants grown on the Alocasia mix

            Water only when the top 2-3cm of the soil is dried out. You can test this out by poking your finger in the soil to feel around.

            Do not forget to keep the soil moist! If the soil dries out completely the plant will suffer
