Alocasia - Borneo King - Elephant Ear
Similar to the Borneo Giant, the Borneo King can take on northern climates and still grow up to 8 feet in the first season. The leaves are large and upright and typically grow 3 to 4 feet long and wide. If your plant doesn't look just like the picture, give it a little time to grow up. Elephant Ears' attributes become even more defined when they mature.
- Mature height: 7-10 feet
- Light: Filtered sunlight
- Soil: Well-drained. Keep moist but not soggy.
- Zones: 8-11
