The Elephants Ear Polly houseplant has extremely striking arrow-shaped foliage that is not one to be passed over. Deep green narrow leaves with light, visible veins and purple undersides make this plant stand out from the crowd. 

Part of the popular Elephant's Ear (Alocasia) family, The Polly is beautiful, elegant, and incredibly easy to maintain as a houseplant. This stunner will grow a thick trunk in time and will increase the size of its leaves, but will not get as large as its relative, the Amazonica, making it a great show stoppers for smaller spaces. 

Keep your Elephants Ear Polly houseplant in a warm well-lit space and provide it with evenly moist soil and some humidity to keep it looking fabulous all year round. Pair with a gorgeous planter of choice and use it as a tabletop accent piece or an ornamental space filler on a curated shelf.

A definite must-have for all plant parents and collectors alike...

Please note: Alocasias are known to cause some illness when consumed, best kept out of reach from hungry pets and people.

Follow these instructions to keep your Amazonica healthy and happy.

Light: Bright, indirect light, keep away from direct sunlight.
