Elephant Ear 'Stingray' | Alocasia macrorrhiza 'Stingray'

I have mid-dark green large leaves that are wide and finish with a whiptail, much like the stingrays you'll find in the sea.

Useful to know:

Origin

I am from the tropical rainforests of Asia.

Height/Growth

If you look after me super well I could grow as tall as 1.8m.

Light

I like dappled or indirect light.

Water

I like my soil to be lightly moist, but when I'm small I'm vulnerable to root rot so do not overdo it.

Temperature

I like it warm and humid so keep me in an enclosed space.

Feeding

Please feed me diluted fertiliser once a month during the growing season.

Grooming

My leaves can get quite big and would like the occasional dusting. Prune away any damaged leaves.

Care

I take a while to adjust to new environments so may well droop and lose a leaf before I finally settle in.

Toxicity

I am toxic so please don't eat me.

Fact

In the wild, my leaves can grow up to 1m wide so I'm often used as a hideout during showers. Click here to buy Elephant Ear 'Stingray'.
