AlocasiaAlocasia ‘Calidora’ is one of my favourite balcony plants. The large leaves remind me of something Cleopatra would have been fanned with.I’ve used these in full sun to full shade, however Alocasia need moist soil, so unless you’re prepared for a big water bill, I’d stick to part shade and full shade. Alocasia are fantastic for screening out neighbours and unsightly aspects. Keep the water up and they take off like crazy. I generally plant these in large egg-shaped pots around three to four times the size of the plant’s root ball.Tell usWhat plants do you use on your balcony? Are they thriving or struggling?
