🌿 Botanical Name: Alocasia 'Serendipity'

🐾 Pet Warning: Toxic to cats and dogs if ingested, causing oral irritation, pain and swelling of the mouth, tongue, and lips, vomiting, and difficulty swallowing. It's strongly recommended to keep this plant out of reach of pets.

💧 Care Level: Moderate to High. Alocasia 'Serendipity' requires careful attention to its specific care requirements, especially regarding humidity, watering, and light, making it more suited for individuals who are willing to dedicate time to its maintenance.

📏 Approximate Size: Alocasia 'Serendipity' typically reaches about 2-3 feet (60-90 cm) in height and width. It features large, glossy leaves that make it a visually striking addition to any space.

🌞 Light: Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate medium light levels. Direct sunlight should be avoided, as it can cause leaf scorch, while insufficient light may result in leggy growth.

💧 Water: Maintain consistently moist soil without allowing it to become waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil begins to dry out, using distilled or rainwater to prevent leaf spotting from tap water minerals.

💦 Humidity: Requires high humidity levels to thrive. Utilize a humidifier, mist the plant regularly, or place it on a pebble tray with water to increase the surrounding humidity.

🌡️ Temperature: Thrives in warm conditions, with ideal temperatures ranging from 65°F to 85°F (18°C to 29°C). Protect the plant from temperatures below 60°F (15°C), as cold can damage it.

❄️ Hardiness: Not frost-tolerant and is best kept as an indoor plant in most climates, or outdoors in tropical climates where it can be protected from temperature extremes.

🌱 Fertilizing: Fertilize every 4 to 6 weeks during the growing season with a balanced, liquid fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. Reduce fertilizing during the winter months.

🔄 Re-potting: Re-pot in the spring every 1 to 2 years, using a well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter. Choose a pot that is only slightly larger than the current one, as 'Serendipity' prefers not to be too root-bound.

🌱 Propagation: Propagate through division during repotting. Ensure each division includes at least one growth point for successful propagation. Be cautious during the process to maintain the health of both the parent and offspring plants.
