Native to the tropical rainforests of Southern Asia, Alocasias are fantastic foliage plants grown for their glossy heart shaped leaves and often referred to as 'Elephant's Ears'. Alocasia Clypeolata is a stunning cultivar featuring thick, green waxy leaves with darker veining and light green undersides.
IMPORTANT: Please do not repot and keep it warm initially after arriving to you. Give them a few weeks to settle in and then repot into well draining soil if you need to. Keep root ball intact as best as possible when repotting. REMEMBER that these are a corm plants and may go dormant during winter if not kept warm enough. It will resprout in spring.
Alocasias thrive in a well draining soil, in bright indirect light, indoors, outdoor shade, balconies and courtyards, protected from direct sun on the leaves. Make sure to give it a good drench when it's almost dry. Feed your Alocasia every 2-3 weeks through Spring and Summer with a good quality liquid fertiliser and watch her grow! It won’t need to be watered as often through the cooler months, and hold off the fertiliser then too.
