    Borneo King Elephant Ear

    Borneo King Elephant Ear.

    Alocasia Borneo King is said to be for northern states what the Alocasia Borneo Giant is for southern states– a plant that can grow to huge proportions in one season. The hardiness and vigor can be compared to Alocasia odora. Alocasia Borneo King can grow from a starter sized plant to 4 - 8 feet in the first season. The leaves are large upright foliage usually 3 to 4 feet long and wide.

     

    Light: 65%-73% shade, likes high light, but will do reasonably well in 80% shade.  Zones  7b - 10

     

    Starter plants are shipped in 3" deep pots. We try to keep all of our plants between 3-8" in height with excellent root systems.
