Your Elephants Ear comes in a 30cm Nursery Pot. 

The Alocasia family brings us many exquisite species and the Macrorrhiza is no exception. Starting off lush and bushy when small, this houseplant will develop a nice strong stem with a crown of large fanning statement leaves as it matures.

A lovely alternative for lush, jungle vibes to the more conventional foliage plants. Give the Elephants Ear a nice bright lit spot and watch the performance unfold. 


Follow these instructions to keep your Elephants Ear healthy and happy.

Water: Keep soil evenly, but lightly moist and allow the top 2-3cm of the soil to dry out between waterings. Water less in winter as the plant is dormant. 
Light: Very bright, indirect light is best! 
Humidity: High humidity is required. To increase humidity, you can place the pot on a tray of pebbles and water. Make sure the pot is sitting on the pebbles and not in the water. You can also mist the plant to increase humidity. 
Fertilize: Water every second week during spring to summer with diluted balanced liquid fertiliser. Don't fertilise in the cooler months.
