Originally from Southeast Asia, I am a smaller, striking elephant ear (Alocasia) that thrives in rainforest-like conditions. Keep me in a shaded, warm, humid spot to ensure maximum growth.
I tend to go to sleep during the winter time and my leaves may die off, but never fear…I will come back stronger than ever in Spring if you look after me!
I am quite a sensitive plant, so keep me in a mostly shaded spot out of the direct sunlight, making me ideal as an indoor plant. If I receive too much light, my leaves will turn yellow and die off.
I prefer to live on the drier side, so wait until my soil is mostly dry in between watering, and make sure my pot has a drainage hole.
Like all plants, the amount of water I need depends on the amount of light I get.
I’ll be right at home in a good quality, well-drained potting mix. To make sure my roots can breathe in between watering, house me in a pot with a drainage hole.
Approx. Plant Height: 20-30cm
