Alocasia porteii - Malaysian Monster - Elephant Ear
Our plants ship in 3-inch-deep pots when they are 2.5 to 6 inches tall so they can grow to maturity under your green thumb.
Most elephant ears reach an impressive size, but the Malaysian Monster is massive. The leaves can grow anywhere from 4 to 6 inches long. The marbled stems are unlike any other variety. So if you're looking for a large, beautiful centerpiece for your garden, go big, go green, go Malaysian Monster. 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: 4-9 feet. Light: Full to part sun Soil: Well-drained. Keep moist but not soggy. Zones: 9-11
GOOD TO KNOW
