Description: Alocasia 'Tiny Dancer' stands out with its unusual leaf shape and structure, resembling small green cups or dancers poised on long, slender stems. This charming and quirky appearance makes it a favorite among plant collectors and enthusiasts looking for something different in their indoor garden.

🌿 Botanical Name: Alocasia 'Tiny Dancer'

🐾 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 advisable to keep this plant out of reach of pets.

💧 Care Level: Moderate. Alocasia 'Tiny Dancer' requires attention to its specific care needs, particularly in terms of humidity, watering, and light, but it can be a manageable plant for those who are willing to provide the necessary care.

📏 Approximate Size: Alocasia 'Tiny Dancer' is known for its compact size, typically reaching about 1-2 feet (30-60 cm) in height and width. Its unique, slender leaves are held up by thin stems, giving the appearance of dancing foliage.

🌞 Light: Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate medium light levels. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves, and too dim light, which can stunt growth and reduce the vibrancy of the leaves.

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

💦 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 ambient humidity.

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

❄️ Hardiness: Not frost-tolerant and is best kept as an indoor plant in most climates, or outdoors in tropical climates with appropriate care.

🌱 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 'Tiny Dancer' does not like to be too root-bound.

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