Alocasia Macrorrhiza Albo Variegata / Elephant Ear

$289.00
| /

From own propagation; division from the mother plant; already very well established, with an approximately "hand fist" sized tuber; from 100% organic cultivation therefore very high quality; planted in self-mixed permeable organic substrate and grown WITHOUT fertiliser therefore robust and top healthy (100% organic quality before quantity!). The leaves will reach the diameter of about 1m in time - beautiful greenish flowering; wonderful as a solitary plant; for the room, terrace or conservatory; stem-forming; with unique green-white variegated leaves.

The plants like it warm and humid (indoors they can be sprayed regularly with lukewarm water). They grow best in shade, although most species could grow in some sunlight as long as they get enough water.

Between 05-10, the Alocasia can be grown as a container plant in the garden, for a sunny to semi-shady location; originating from Central Asia and India. Neither the plant nor the tuber is hardy!

If you want, you can also give the plant a "winter break"; so that only the tuber with the stem (without leaves) comes through the winter at about 15C in the winter quarters. In spring, with enough sun& warmth, it will sprout beautifully again; like all my Colocasias/Alocasias since a few years...
