Alocasia Elephant Ear  Live Plant can be container grown. Alocasia elephant ear plant also known as Alocasia macrorrhiza is also known as the ‘Giant Elephant Ear’. It is a fantastic specimen plant for that tropical look, and is also a great indoor plant. It has large, glossy emerald green leaves 4-6 feet long, held stiffly upwards, with prominent veining on the underside of the leaves. The plant will easily grow to 9 feet in good conditions in the ground. If grown in a pot, it will not reach its full potential, but still, expect at least 3 to 4 feet (or more) if your pot is large enough.

It tolerates a very mild frost. Like all Alocasias, this plant requires warmth and humidity. The soil should be rich but well drained, and the plant appreciates frequent watering (daily), especially in hot weather and as the plant grows larger. This is a very fast growing Alocasia. In good conditions, is a great plant for those of you who have nice enough summers, but too cold winters. You can grow it outdoors during the spring and summer, where it will reach its full size in a season. 


Elephant ears need bright sunlight when grown indoors, but nothing too harsh. If you notice the leaves are looking bleached or singed, move it to a dimmer spot or add a sheer curtain. Outdoors they do well in partial shade.


Elephant ears like to stay consistently moist, but not soggy. Be especially careful with watering if you use a pot without drainage holes. Always test the soil with your finger first. Humidity is also important to elephant ears, so it’s a good idea to set the pot in a saucer of water elevated by pebbles. (The pebbles will prevent the roots from sitting directly in the water, which will cause rotting).


This plant prefers fast-draining, well-aerated potting soil. An organic, loose soil that contains a good amount of peat moss is ideal. If the soil is heavy, lighten it with some builder’s sand or perlite.

    Great place to buy plants. I bought three plants and the package was very neat and there was no damage and nice quality. The leaves were fresh and it wasn’t crumbled or dry when I received them. They have a variety of collections at a reasonable price, which I strongly recommend.
