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.
Please note: Elephants ears can cause stomach upset when ingested.
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.
