Alacosia zebrina

Elephant Ear 


This alacosia's glossy, arrow-shaped leaves sit on tiger-striped stems. 


Happiest in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sun which will scorch the leaves. Likes to be warm, so keep at temperatures between 18-22°C. Loves humidity and will be happy sitting on a pebble tray with a regular misting. Water little and often with warm water - do not allow soil to dry out. Water less during the winter.


Keep away from pets & children as harmful if ingested and a skin/eye irritant.
