This plant is jungly! We love it! The Alocasia or Elephant Ear is easily recognizable by its heart-shaped or arrow-headed leaves with their distinctive downward curl. The leaves range in size from 8 to 35 inches, depending on the climate and the environment you place it in. If space is an issue for your homescape, the “Low Rider” Alocasia grows to only 2 ft. high.

The Alocasia loves sunlight, and will do well indoors as long as you place it in a bright spot that is not excessively dry. Make sure to clean its leaves weekly, and keep the soil damp, not soggy. Keep the plant out of pets and toddlers’ reach, as it can be toxic if ingested. If you keep the plant outside during summer, transition it gradually indoors for colder months. These plants come in 4" pots as pictured.

We package and ship our plants with the utmost care. However, we cannot be responsible for damage during shipping. Not every plant will look exactly like the picture, as all plants are unique, but we strive to keep them consistent.

Orders placed Sunday through Tuesday will be shipped the next day (excluding holidays). Orders placed on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday will be shipped out the following Monday (excluding holidays). This is in best interest of the plants.

Plants shipped in winter usually do great. One of the most important keys to the success of the plant's arrival is that the plant is is brought in immediately upon delivery.
