Variegated Frydek

Sale price$36.00

The Variegated Alocasia Frydek, with its striking white and green leaves, is a breathtaking addition to any plant collection. Originating from Southeast Asia, this tropical plant thrives in conditions that mimic its native environment. Here's how you can care for your Variegated Alocasia Frydek to ensure it remains vibrant and healthy:

Lighting and Temperature

Your Variegated Alocasia Frydek prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight can harm the leaves, so a spot that receives filtered light is ideal. This plant enjoys warm temperatures ranging between 65°F and 80°F (18°C and 27°C), so it's vital to protect it from cold drafts and temperature fluctuations​.


High humidity levels, ideally 60% or higher, are crucial for your Alocasia Frydek. You can increase humidity by using a humidifier, placing the plant on a pebble tray with water, or grouping it with other plants​.


Water your Alocasia Frydek when the top 2 inches of soil feel dry. It's essential to strike a balance with watering – avoid letting the soil completely dry out, but also steer clear of overwatering as it can lead to root rot​.

Soil and Fertilizing

Use a well-draining soil mix that retains some moisture, such as a blend of peat moss, perlite, and potting soil. During the growing season (spring and summer), fertilize your plant once a month with a diluted, balanced, water-soluble fertilizer to support healthy growth​.

Potting, Repotting, and Pruning

Choose a pot with proper drainage and repot your Alocasia Frydek when it becomes root-bound, typically every 1-2 years. Pruning isn't usually necessary unless you need to remove damaged or yellowing leaves to encourage new growth​.


The Variegated Alocasia Frydek can be propagated through various methods such as basal offset division, corms, or stem cuttings. However, it's worth noting that variegation can be unstable, and not all propagated plants may retain the variegated patterns​.

Common Issues

Watch out for pests like mealybugs and spider mites. Also, be mindful of the water and humidity levels to prevent brown leaf tips or drooping leaves, which can indicate underwatering, low humidity, or overwatering​.

It's important to remember that the Variegated Alocasia Frydek, with its stunning appearance, can enhance both landscaping and interior design, serving as a focal point in gardens or as living art in indoor spaces. Given its particular care requirements and sensitivity to environmental changes, it can be somewhat challenging to grow. However, with proper care, it can provide a magnificent display of nature's artistry​.
