About Alocasia Polly

The Alocasia Polly will give you some interesting visuals when it is experiencing too much water saturation.  The leaves will release liquid through the hydathodes cells. This process is called guttation and appears as tears on the margins and tips of the leaves. The liquid contains salts, sugars, and other substances and is a natural occurrence if the soil is too wet.
