Description

African mask plant, crocodile plant, kris plant? He's got more names than you ever had. But how is he different from the rest of the Alocasia family? He's smaller in height. 

Hailing from Southeast Asia, this popular elephant's ear (Alocasia x amazonica, part of the Alocasia genus) and most commonly grown for their ears (leaf). The leaves are roughly serrated, and in some cases, the leaf colour appears as almost purple-green. Leaf shapes range from wide hearts to slim arrowheads, with textures from slick and glossy to thick and waxy. It is a fleshy evergreen that grows from underground corms. These plants rarely bloom, however, and are grown primarily for their foliage.

  • Quick Facts
    • What to use me for: Great little collectors plant 
    • I grow to: 30-40cm high, 40cm wide 

    • Where to place me: I love full shade outside or bright indirect light indoors - go easy on the watering can!

    • My features: Because I am a tropical plant in the cooler months my foliage might die off and I might go dormant. If this happens remove dead leaves and water a lot less. I will reshoot when it gets warm enough  

  • Size
  • I come to you in my cute little grow pot ground ready for you to pot me up and just love!

  • Growing
  • Growing is easy; I like filtered sun or shade and rich, moist soil—and I'll grow rapidly. Like most tropical plants, I thrive in warm temperatures and high humidity. Cutaway dead and dying leaves for the best display, and keep an eye out for mites. I'll go dormant in the winter, so be patient with me as ill come back strong in the Spring. If I go completely dormant, you may be able to dig up the corm (bulb-like) and save it until you can keep me warm again in warmer months.

    Keep the soil moist but remember that I wouldn't say I like wet feet. Therefore, if possible, water me in the morning (so they are dry overnight) and from below, at the roots, to keep the leaves from getting too wet.
