Alocasia Zebrina – Large (6″)
The alocasia zebrina owes its name to the unique and stunning yellow and black zebra print-esque markings on its stems that contrast with its lush green leaves. Its leaves are thought to mirror the floppy ears of an elephant – hence the alocasia zebrina’s other name, ‘elephant ear’. This plant can be a little fussy, but is a fast grower in the right conditions.
Water: Medium. Keep the soil moist with warm water. Do not allow the soil to dry out.
Sunlight: Bright indirect light. Direct sun will scorch the leaves. Can tolerate lower light.
Placement: Near a south facing window with frosted glass or sheer blinds, this plant will thrive. A bright bathroom is a perfect spot with light and humidity.
Pets: Not pet-friendly!
