Alocasia lauterbachiana - 85mm

Description

Lovers of large-leafed foliage step up.

Alocasia are unusual plants with large patterned leaves sitting pretty on thin stems. You might know them better as Elephant’s Ear.

Alocasia Lauterbachiana is a good-looking guy with lance-shaped leaves and wavy scallops along the borders. He’s dark green on top but burgundy beneath with long mottled stems.

If you take care of this handsome plant he’ll make a ‘wow!’ feature for your home or tropical style garden.

Good news then that Alocasia are showy plants with simple needs! Pop yours in free-draining but rich potting mix and water when the soil is dry. Choose a bright place with dappled light, mist them now and then - and that’s about it! Learn how to care for your indoor plants on our blog page 'The quick start guide: Indoor plants'.

Alocasia really love a bathroom’s humidity, so why not get rid of that old dusty blind and cover up with large tropical foliage instead.

We must note that he is poisonous if digested so please just don't.

If you prefer your plants just that little bit bigger this 3 pack x 85mm pots is for you.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I’m a statement plant in any room of the house and fill an understorey gap in a shady border.

  • I grow to: I can reach 50-75cms in height.

  • Where to place me: Dappled, indirect light please.

  • How far to space me: I need about 30cms of elbow room in the border.

  • Soil Conditions: I need free-draining potting mix as my roots will rot in standing water.

  • Watering conditions: Water me frequently but do not allow the plant to stand in water. Cut back in Winter.

  • My features: The foliage is dark green on top and burgundy-purple underneath, with mottled stems.

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door
