How to take care of your plant after transit?
Plants are no different from human – we suffer from jetlag after long transit. Yet, some plants are more adapting while some are not. Here are the tips to rescue your jetlag green baby.
To ensure that the Alocasia will revive after transit, we cut the leaves before we put it in the box so to let the plant to stay dormant. Upon receipt of the Alocasia, please check carefully whether the root is rotten. If the root is not rotten, and the caudex looks healthy, please follow the following steps to take care of it:
Step 1: Plant the Alocasia in substrate consists of 1:1 peatmoss and pearlite
Step 2: Don’t over water it. While Alocasia does prefer a humid environment, but after transit the root needs to breath, therefore you just need to water it in moderate amount
Step 3: Place the Alocasia in an indirect light environment with good air circulation. New leaves will grow in 2-3 weeks!

Step 1: If then begonia looks dehydrated, you can put in the root in water (not the leave!) with cover for 24 hours to maintainn air humidity.
Step 2: Plant it in a pot filled with soil, then shower your plant. Make sure the substrate is 100% saturated with water.
Step 2: Put your potted plant in an enclosed humid environment with indirect sunlight, then leave it there 7-14 days. Make sure the substrate is always saturated with water. 2-3 weeks later a healthy begonia is waving hand at you!
