The Alocasia Amazonica Polly is a relatively new variety on the plant market. Thanks to its resemblance to hand carved African masks, the plant is also known as the African Mask. Whilst the Alocasia Amazonica Polly is nicknamed African Mask because of its foliage, the plant isn’t really from Africa. The plant is actually native to the Pacific Islands, particularly the Philippines; an area that’s known for its tropical climate. The humidity surrounding this indoor plant should therefore always be humid.
Place the African Mask in a light spot, in filtered sunlight. Make sure the potting soil is always mildly moist, but not wet. It’s best to water the plant regularly, and to give small amounts of water each time. Just enough to moisten the potting soil.
