An Alocasia plant, native to Asia, is also called an Elephant Ear plant or African Mask plant because of their very large, heart-shaped leaves with wavy edges. These stunning, veined leaves come in red, bronze, blue-green, and purple. If you are searching for a dramatic, very different looking plant that can be as small as 6″ or as tall as a tree, an Alocasia plant is a great choice. These plants do require extra care and attention.
Light: Bright indirect light. I like warm temperature between 60- 80 degrees. Please move me away from air conditioner or cold drafts.
Water: Allow 2"-3" of soil to dry out before watering. Likes soil evenly moist.
Fertilizer: Every two weeks from late March through September.
Care Tips: Alocasia plants grow best in high humidity. To increase the humidity, place the plant on a tray filled with pebbles and water.
