Giant Elephant Ear | Alocasia macrorrhiza

The Giant Elephant Ear looks exactly like it sounds. These beauties will take centre stage with their monstrous size of 4.5 meters tall!

Growing pot size: 19 cm

Key Information

  • These gorgeous exotic plants will turn any space into a living rainforest!
  • Striking large, waxy emerald leaves reflect light into any given space.
  • Great for indoors and outdoors. Frost tender, they require winter protection.
  • Highly toxic. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

Key Benefits: Humidifying

Plants with large leaves require lots of water to grow. Because of this, they release lots of water into the air, increasing humidity. Humidity helps maintain the health of our immune defences and reduce the spread of airborne viruses.

Giant Elephant Ear: She’s Good For You!

  • Dust trapping: Plants with large surface areas are excellent dust trappers. By trapping dust, plants can help reduce headaches, chest tightness and dry skin!
  • Air purifying: Their magnificent large leaves maximize photosynthesis and remove toxins floating in the air.

Plant Care Tips:

  • Light: These beauties love bright indirect light. They will also benefit from occasional direct sunlight on their leaves. Place in a South-facing window during the winter and North-facing in the summer. 
  • Water: Water once a week or when the top few centimetres of soil has dried. 
  • Fertilizer: For maximum growth, feed monthly with a balanced fertilizer during Spring and Summer. 
  • Propagation: Propagate through division or by separating corms. Check out our frequently asked questions to find out how!
  • Repotting: Repot every 12-18 months. Choose a pot that’s 5 cm larger in diameter than the original pot

Top tip: These stunners love a humid environment, so make sure to mist them often!

Where is it from?

Native to the rainforests of Island Southeast Asia, New Guinea and Queensland.

Is the Giant Elephant Ear for me?

The Giant Elephant Ear is a must-have plant for all plant lovers. Just take a look at their stunning large leaves. The perfect grand centrepiece for any room! All you need to do is make sure to take care of their proper needs. An occasional mist and dust of their leaves is just about as difficult as it gets. Leave it in a place with lots of bright indirect light and watch its beauty unfold! 

Giant Elephant Ear: Common Problems

My leaves are going spotty

Spotty leaves can be caused by a mixture of environmental conditions. This includes too much direct sunlight, pests or water with high levels of chlorine. Try moving your plant to a spot with plenty of indirect bright light, assess for pests and collect rainwater or use distilled water. You can also fill up your watering can and leave it overnight to let the chlorine evaporate.

My leaves have browning tips, what shall I do?

Browning tips can occur from low humidity. Increase the humidity by regularly misting the plant or using a humidifier. Another snazzy way is to place the plant on top of a tray with pebbles. 

Common Pests: susceptible to spider mites

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I propagate my Giant Elephant Ear?: These plants are propagated through division or by separating corms. Remove the plant parent from its pot and select corms with roots, which will be growing on the plant parent’s corm. Separate and place them into well-draining soil, and watch them grow!

How should I clean the dust off my plant? Gently wipe the leaves down with a damp cloth to remove the dust. Remove any yellowing leaves instantly.

Why do my leaves keep dropping? A lot of plants go through dormant periods. This means that leaves will naturally drop and fade, which is a reaction to seasonal changes. Dropping leaves can indicate overwatering, so make sure you stick to the recommended watering schedule.

If your item is found to be defective or damaged, you will be entitled to a full refund. In many cases, we will not require the item be delivered back to us, however, in some circumstances we may request that this it is. If this is the case, our customer service team will gladly help you through this process.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
