i am also in southern california. though i don't have the alocasia reginula,
i have other species of alocasia which require similar conditions as yours.
i would suggest putting them outside where it is brighter. i do agree with
the indirect light. i have fried a few trying to see if they could tolerate
direct sunlight. humdity doesn't seem to be a huge factor here, but i do
mist my plants on a regular basis, especially because i am concerned with
potential for mites in the warm and dry conditions here.
hope this helps.
