Alocasia macrorrhiza portadora

Mature tubestock, premium and ready to plant!

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 macrorrhiza portadora is a particular beauty and a favourite with us, because it has fast-growing glossy emerald green leaves that can reach a metre in length. If you take care of this handsome plant it’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 free from burning direct light and that’s about it.

Alocasia really love a bathroom’s humidity so feel free to get rid of that old dusty blind and cover up with his large tropical foliage instead.
