How To Propagate Alocasia Polly?
Alocasia Polly is a kind of plant that is very suitable for domestic propagation and always has its advantages. First of all, the shape of Alocasia Polly is relatively beautiful and generous. Its leaves are very broad, and the color is bright green. The flowers are fresh and beautiful white, which complement the green of the leaves and are of great ornamental value. Alocasia Polly originated in the north and South continents, and now many families are planting it. So what is the propagation method of Alocasia Polly? Let's study together.

Why Propagate an Alocasia Polly Plant?

Alocasia Polly plant will continuously send out new seedlings to increase offspring, which is also called asexual reproduction. The continuous emergence of seedlings of Alocasia Polly plant will continuously increase the number of potted Alocasia Polly plants. When the number of plants of potted Alocasia Polly plant reaches a certain number, the care of pots will not meet the needs of Alocasia Polly plant for continuous reproduction and growth, The nutrient of the plant material in the pot is not enough to support the healthy growth of Alocasia Polly plant, which reduces the seedling growth rate and flowering rate of Alocasia Polly plant. At this time, it is necessary to repot or division for Alocasia Polly plant. Promoting Alocasia Polly plant from division is the most ideal choice, which can straighten out the root system, Let Alocasia Polly plant obtain more growth space and sufficient nutrients.

Things We Need During Propagation

  • Healthy and mature Alocasia Polly Plant 
  • Sharp scissors/shears
  • Spare Pot
  • New Soil and Water
  • Newspaper or plastic sheet

Propagating an Alocasia Polly Plant Through Division

Propagating an Alocasia Polly plant through division is very common. It is good to select the plant growth point in two to three years. I usually use the strain method in my own breeding, because propagating an Alocasia Polly plant through division is simple. After dividing the plants with a knife, the small plants next to me should be as close as possible to the original soil, For example, with effective protection measures for the growth and survival ability of sea taro, it is good to select the division when the soil is wet in the rainy season - the best division distribution is in spring and autumn. The temperature conditions are comfortable, and it seems that the division is more appropriate.
We can use a knife to separate the small plants next to us and bring more original soil as much as possible, so that the growth and survival of Alocasia Polly can be effectively guaranteed. It is more suitable to separate in rainy season when the soil is wet. It is OK to separate Alocasia Polly in spring and autumn. Under the condition of appropriate temperature, The ramet growth of Alocasia Polly is relatively strong.

What's the Best Time to Propagate an Alocasia Polly?

Spring is the most suitable time for propagating alcoasia poly by division. Because spring is the most vigorous development season of Alocasia Polly, and it is the period with the most juice secretion, especially the secretion of auxin. Therefore, due to the rapid cell division after cutting, it can take root soon. Alocasia Polly is most suitable for division propagation. Divisions in spring are also the best, mainly because plants have strong growth potential in spring and are easy to adapt to the new environment. However, if it splits in autumn and winter, the root system becomes fragile, it is easy to be damaged during splitting, and the growth is obviously weakened. Alocasia polly division can be combined with basin and soil replacement in spring.
