Expand for Product Info

Gorgeous, rare cultivar. They look just like the name. Lots of texture with dark emerald veins and silver leaves. Not sure what else you could ask for to be honest, really freaking cool plant.  

Alocasias, like their Colocasia and Caladium cousins, are commonly known as “Elephant Ears.” Their prominent, shield-like leaves boast an array of uncommon textures and colors, and rare varieties are sought out by collectors. Alocasias are more challenging than some other members of the Arum family, with their love of high humidity, a growth habit that typically sees a maximum of 3-5 leaves on each tender stem, and a less forgiving nature. They tend to like strong indirect light with maybe some morning direct sun, and do best when watered well and then allowed to dry almost completely.
