Hi,

I saw a beautiful Alocasia (I think so) that was discarded by someone. It was cut off from the root. It's a beautiful plant. May I know how I can get it to grow roots again? I've no experience in Alocasia.

Tks!

as long as it still has the bulb it will grow the roots. just cover it with soil will do.

Alocasia is a hardy plant. Yes, what Pino said is correct, it will root easily- They like damp soil and is a shade lover - put the planted plant in a cool shaded/bright area.
