Description for Alocasia, Elephant Ear (Hybrid)

Elephant ear plants (Alocasia spp.) received their common name because their leaves look like green renditions of elephants ears. The plants can be kept indoors as house plants or grown outdoors.
The Elephant Ear plant is a Herbaceous Perennial, meaning that they grow from non-woody stems and will re-bloom each year.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Elephants ear Creamy white Rarely flowers 2 to 6 feet Easy

Planting and care

Best in part shade or filtered sun in moist, organically rich soils. Plant in locations protected from strong winds after last frost date. Rhizomes/tuberous roots may be started indoors in pots or containers. After last frost date, pots may be sunk to the rim in the garden and containers may be set out on the patio.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Bright light, but no direct sunlight and shaded for a good part of the day in the summer, if it's warm and humid enough. Use a fast draining peat based potting mix. Water a little but often - keeping the soil moist at all times. Water much less during winter. approximately 65 to 75 degrees F (18 to 24 degrees C ) Feed with a diluted balanced fertilizer from spring every 2 weeks and stop at the end of August then start again at the beginning of spring.

Caring for Alocasia

  • If elephant ear plants are starving for sunlight, their growth becomes stunted and their leaves may turn a bit pale or yellow. If that happens to container-grown elephant ears, move them to a better-lit area.
  • Too much sunlight, on the other hand, can burn the plants leaves. Adjust your garden accordingly, either by moving the elephant ears or providing them some shade from a tree or other structure.
  • Watch for spider mites.

Harvesting

NA
