I’m Alocasia zebrina. I'm a highly exotic house plant. My leaves are frequently called elephants' ears because of the large size of my foliage. I have the most amazing stem colour, with stripes rather like a zebra! I'm a great structural plant and would make a beautiful feature within interior design.
I'm in a 14cm pot and I'm 35cm in height from the base of my pot.
I like it warm with bright indirect light in the winter and semi-shade in the summer.
I don’t like it when it’s too cold; temperatures above 16°C for sure.
LOOKING AFTER ME
Keep my soil moist, don’t let it dry out. I also like sitting on a tray of pebbles as this adds some humidity, an occasional mist works too.
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
I’m toxic to pets and children, sorry.
