Pruning: Prune your Frydek as needed to remove yellow or damaged leaves and to control its size.

Soil: Alocasia Frydek likes well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. You can use a potting mix that contains peat moss, perlite, and compost.

Pests: Alocasia Frydek is susceptible to pests like spider mites and mealybugs. Check its leaves regularly for signs of infestation and treat any issues promptly.
