Name: Alocasia macrorrhizos

AKA: Giant Taro, Elephant ear

Why we love it: This variety of Alocasia is hard to miss. Known for its large foliage, it's no wonder it earned the nickname "Elephant ear Alocasia". It is native to rainforests of Southeast Asia, New Guinea, and Queensland, but makes a great houseplant anywhere!

Light: Bright indirect light

Water: Keep soil evenly moist, extra humidity is beneficial as well.

Pet Friendly? No, this plant is toxic if ingested.

Plants are sold in their nursery pots. Ceramic pots and baskets are sold separately.
