The California is a prolific elephant ear that grows in a clump. It can withstand temperatures down to 41 degrees Fahrenheit. If it gets colder in your area, bring your California inside. Thanks to its small size, the Alocasia gagaena is a great addition to your home or patio. If your plant doesn't look just like the picture, give it a little time to grow up. Elephant ears' attributes become more defined when they mature.
Mature height: 2-3 feet
Light: Filtered sunlight
Soil: Well-drained. Keep moist but not soggy
