Alocasia African Mask ‘Polly’ – Medium (4″)

Out of stock

We adore this plant for their pointy, shiny, almost rubber-like leaves. Also known as Elephant Ear or African Mask, but Alocasia doesn’t come from Africa at all. It gets its name from its resemblance to the hand carved ceremonial masks found there, but actually hails from the Philippine Islands. 

These 4″ are stunning!

Water: Medium Water 1-2x/week. Keep soil moist, but not wet or saturated. This is not a drought-tolerant plant, but will be a bit forgiving if you forget to water it from time to time. Extended periods of dryness can result in brown leaf tips or edges.

Sunlight: Bright Indirect – Medium African Mask will thrive in bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight—the leaves will burn.  Will tolerate medium light but avoid a dark corner. 

Placement: Find a warm, bright area in your home for these beauties. Alocasia plants appreciate the extra humidity a kitchen or bathroom can offer.

Pets: Mildly toxic to cats and dogs.
