There is something truly outstanding about the Green Shield Alocasia with its deep green veining pronounced by an almost neon green backdrop. The ideal crowd-pleaser and a perfect addition to any Alocasia collection.

These beauties have a similar form to the sought after Dragon Scale Alocasia and are just as easy to care for, besides that they are definite photo-worthy plants for all the Instagram aficionados out there.

It'll enjoy a nice humid environment such as a kitchen or bathroom with bright, indirect light and can also handle some gentle direct sun. Allow the top layer (about 1-2cm) of soil to dry out before watering and consider feeding every two weeks during the growing period.

Elephants Ear Green Shield will look great in a plain coloured planter without too many distracting patterns, in order to let the foliage come to the fore. You'll enjoy it as a centrepiece, or coffee table display, and as the plant matures will make the perfect floor standing specimen, with leaves that can reach up to 60cm in length.

TOP TIP: Consider planting 3 plants together for a full, lush look! <3
