Alocasia Portodora (Upright Elephant Ear)
This plant is all about green, lush topical foliage. The upward pointing scalloped leaves on thick green stems give it the alternative name of upright elephant ear plant.
A fast growing statement houseplant that will feel right at home in the humid environment of kitchens and bathrooms. Can grow up to 2 metres tall.
Water: Keep the compost moist with warm water. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Little and often is a good approach. Overwatering can cause root so not soggy!
Temperature: Needs to be kept warm. Keep away from draughts.
Humidity: Thrives in above average humidity. Ideally suited for kitchens and bathrooms and will appreciate a good misting.
