Plant Information


Alocasia Bambino Pink Variegated is a captivating variety of Alocasia, a genus of tropical plants known for their stunning foliage. This particular cultivar, as the name suggests, not only displays variegation in white and light green but also in different shades of light pink. The Bambino cultivar is notable for its compact size, making it ideal for indoors.


Like all alocasia, the Bambino’s oldest leaves gradually die and fall off as the plant grows. They have a reputation of being somewhat finicky plants, and can be shocked by transplant, change in location or change in temperature. However, they are relatively easy growers once established, and can tolerate periods of low light or neglect.


Care and Maintenance


Remember that each plant is unique, so closely monitor your plant and adjust its care based on its response. By providing the right conditions, you'll be rewarded with a stunning and healthy plant that adds a touch of tropical elegance to your indoor space.



Place your Alocasia Bambino Variegated in bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. Too little light may result in reduced variegation.


Temperature and Humidity

These plants prefer warm and humid conditions. Aim for a temperature range of 65-80°F (18-27°C). If the air in your home is dry, consider using a humidifier or placing the plant on a tray with water and pebbles to increase humidity.



Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure proper drainage in the pot to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.



Use a well-draining potting mix that retains some moisture but doesn't hold water excessively. A mix of potting soil, peat moss, and perlite or orchid bark works well.


Potting and Repotting

Alocasia Bambino Variegated prefers to be slightly root-bound, so only repot when necessary. Repot in the spring if the plant has outgrown its current container, moving it to a pot that's only slightly larger.



During the growing season (spring and summer), feed the plant with a balanced, liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks. Reduce or stop fertilizing in the fall and winter when growth slows down.



Trim away any yellowing or dead leaves as needed. This will not only keep the plant looking its best but also encourage new growth.


Pests and Diseases

Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs. If you spot any pests, take action promptly with appropriate treatments.



To ensure even growth and avoid the plant leaning towards the light source, rotate it every couple of weeks.



Dust can accumulate on the leaves, hindering their ability to absorb light. Wipe the leaves gently with a damp cloth or give the plant a shower occasionally to keep it clean.
