Elephant Ear



I’m sorry if you were expecting a real elephant - but in my opinion, I’m a much cleaner indoor plant house mate. These big ears aren’t going to water themselves - so make sure I’m well watered.  Oh and don’t call me Dumbo - it’s cliché and frankly, a little bit mean. Keep looking really stylish in the Pierre Terrazzo Pot.

Care mode

A low maintenance indoor plant as long as it placed in a room that has the right light conditions and natural humidity. Fertilise in the warmer months. Remember to trim yellowing lower leaves to encourge new growth and in winter this indoor plant may become dormant.

Feeding your indoor plants

To get the best out of your indoor plants, you will need to feed them some food. The Good Plant Co Indoor Plant Food will provide all the nutrients they need to grow more leaves and help them stay strong. 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). Sometimes it’s ok to be a helicopter parent – respond to your plant’s needs. To keep the dust off your beautiful indoor plant leaves use The Good Plant Co Leaf Shine. Moral of the story, if it is growing new leaves then it will need more water and food!

We take great care in growing, packaging, and shipping your new plants so they’re ready to thrive in your home. This includes keeping them safe while they travel from our wholesale nursery to your doorstep.
