Elephant Ear 'Tiger' | Alocasia zebrina Tiger

All Alocasias are loved for their big, arrow-shaped leaves, but I have the added attraction of animal print stems.

Useful to know:

Origin

I am native to the Philippines.

Height/Growth

I will grow to between 45-90cm and can get there pretty quickly if I'm cared for well.

Light

I'll do best in a well lit room but direct sunlight will scorch my leaves.

Water

I like my soil to be lightly moist. To avoid root rot, give me small amounts of warm water regularly.

Temperature

Keep me warm, ideally between 18-22°C.

Feeding

Feed me some slow release fertiliser once a month during the growing season.

Grooming

Wipe my leaves to remove dust and any pests.

Care

Don't panic if my leaves fade and die, this could be because I'm entering my dormant period. I'll need less water during this time, and will bounce back in the Spring.

Toxicity

I'm best kept out of reach of children and pets.

Fact

Until recently I could only be found on one single island in the Philippines. In fact, until 2017, you couldn't get me from any growers and I wasn't even listed on the RHS website!
