Your plant will be happy in bright light that is preferably indirect, otherwise the leaves could be scorched. A little way back from a window in a bright room is optimum.
Alocasias will go through periods of dormancy, so do not worry if you notice that their leaves are fading. Simply water slightly less during this stage.
