Although you might think that I’m the more “hardcore” brother of the Indoor Plant Elephants Ear, I’m anything but hardcore. My big leaves aren’t going to water themselves so make sure I’m well watered. Oh and just because Metallica is featured in my name doesn’t mean I like heavy metal. If you really want me to be a big hit at home create an alocasia family with my brother, the Dwarf Elephant Ears!
Your new Alocasia Plumbea size is:
Large: 40cm-60cm in height. Planted in a 200mm black plastic nursery pot.
When the plant is actively growing during the warmer months, it needs a bit more food and water. During the slow growing season (cooler winter months) your plant doesn’t eat or drink as much (no extra winter layer of fat for these babies).
