Alocasia zebrina - Reticulata - Elephant Ear
The Reticulata Elephant Ear has elongated leaves with a patterned coloration that you won't find in other Alocasias. This variety makes a great houseplant thanks to its manageable size. 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: 18-36 inches. Light: Full to part shade. Soil: Do not let dry out between waterings. Zones: 7b-11.
GOOD TO KNOW
Size: Our plants ship in 3-inch-deep pots when they are 2.5-6 inches tall so they can grow to maturity under your green thumb.
Damaged leaves? Don’t fret. The leaves will quickly re-grow from the tubers. And you won’t even have to wait for the plant to mature. Even starter-size plants will produce new leaves.
