I have an Alocasia Sanderiana (Kris plant
)in a room on the western side of the house, so it gets a bit of direct sun in the afternoon. I know that this is not optimum as they prefer no direct sun, but this plant
seems to be doing very well in this spot. It gets on average about 1 hour of direct sun per day, though this is partially shaded by a large cherry tree
on the outside.
My question is about the flowering period of this plant
. It started pushing out 2 flowers
recently and it took them a very long time to form, but they then died very shortly afterwards (2 and 3 days respectively). Is it normal for these flowers
to stay for such a short period of time, or did they only stay for such a short period because the plant
is getting too much light? Or is there perhaps somethign else I should be aware of?
