Plant Care Guide:
1. Light: The Alocasia Polly 'African Mask' thrives in bright, indirect light. It appreciates a few hours of direct sunlight in the morning or late afternoon, but avoid placing it in intense, direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves. Insufficient light may cause the plant to grow leggy and lose its vibrant coloration.

2. Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. The 'African Mask' prefers slightly moist soil and can be sensitive to both underwatering and overwatering. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry, and ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogged roots. Mist the leaves occasionally to increase humidity.

3. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix that retains some moisture. A mix formulated for houseplants or a combination of peat moss, perlite, and sand will work well. Ensure the pot has drainage holes to prevent water accumulation at the roots.

4. Temperature and Humidity: The Alocasia Polly 'African Mask' prefers average room temperatures between 65°F (18°C) and 75°F (24°C). It appreciates higher humidity levels, so consider using a humidifier or placing the plant on a tray of water-filled pebbles to increase humidity. Avoid exposing it to cold drafts or sudden temperature changes.

5. Fertilizer: Feed your Alocasia Polly 'African Mask' with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Follow the instructions on the fertilizer packaging for the correct dosage. Reduce or stop fertilizing during the winter months when the plant's growth slows down.

6. Pruning: Pruning is not necessary for this plant, but you can trim off any yellowing or damaged leaves to maintain its overall appearance. Removing spent flowers can also help redirect energy towards new growth.

7. Propagation: The Alocasia Polly 'African Mask' can be propagated through division. When the plant has grown larger, carefully remove it from its pot and separate the rhizomes, ensuring each division has roots attached. Plant the divisions in separate pots with fresh potting soil.

Experience the exotic beauty of the Alocasia Polly 'African Mask' in your indoor space. With its striking foliage and relatively easy care requirements, this plant is sure to be a conversation starter and a stunning addition to your plant collection. With proper care, it will thrive and bring a touch of tropical elegance to any room.
