Alocasias are known for their distinctive and stunning foliage. These plants are also known as elephant ears because of their broad size. They have heart or arrow-shaped leaves with flat or wavy edges and veining that ranges from green to cream. The stems of alocasias grow out of a tuber and may also have beautiful coloring. These subtropical plants hail from Asia and Eastern Australia. In nature, alocasias grow underneath a tree canopy, so they developed large leaves to absorb limited light. Alocasia houseplants like a higher humidity so consider areas that are more humid or group together with other plants to keep them happier.

Some varieties of alocasia will grow into large plants with massive leaves. Smaller varieties (Jewel Alocasias) are more manageable in size. These fast-growing houseplants can push out new leaves almost weekly when actively growing in the warmer months.

Light: Make sure your alocasia is in a spot where it can receive plenty of bright indirect light.

Soil: The potting mixture must be well aerated, well-drained, and yet remain moist.

Water: when the top couple of inches of the soil are dry. They have medium water requirements. They like to partially dry out between waterings, but they do not like to be soggy. Cut back on watering during the colder months if the plant is not actively growing.

Alocasias are toxic so keep them out of reach of pets and children.
