About Alocasia Plants

Elephant's ear, commonly known as Alocasia, has huge, intricately patterned leaves. Despite being a large plant, the long, silky stems that emerge from a tuber give it an airy and graceful appearance. Those stems can be plain or have tiger stripes, and the leaf is just as interesting.

Alocasia is a plant that grows in the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia and belongs to the Arum family. It's very widespread on Borneo, where it can grow to be four metres tall. The original varieties have been developed into decorative plants. These aren't edible, but they're quite lovely. In the 1950s, Alocasia took over living rooms and has a lovely retro vibe.

If you're seeking for a unique houseplant to add to your collection, Alocasia may be the plant for you. Alocasia plants benefit from the extra humidity that a kitchen or bathroom can provide.
