Most Alocasia species can thrive in the shade, although they prefer filtered sunlight that is slightly brighter. You can place this plant near an East-facing window.
The Alocasia odora requires high humid conditions. It’s possible for these Elephant ear plants to die if the temperature drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15.5 degrees Celsius). During the winter, certain kinds will die down and re-sprout from the rhizome.
