  Re: Alocasia potting mix

had a similar experience with black velvet in pro-mix in a shady location. i
wanted to dump it, but she who must be obeyed insisted we try it in the
ground. so i planted out. our soil is sand to the center of the earth with a
little organic matter in the top three feet and a lot of moisture the rest
of the way down. it is planted in the light shade provided by tall slash
pines [which are also likely responsible for the organic matter in the
sand]. to cut to the chase, the plant has rallied. it now consists of three
thick stalks and a dozen or more leaves.
