Alocasia

Alocasia Amazonica
African Mask - Elephant Ear Plant

An Alocasia plant, native to Asia, is also called an Elephant Ear plant or African Mask plant because of their very large,  glossy, heart-shaped leaves with wavy edges. These stunning, veined leaves come in red, bronze, blue-green, and purple. If you are searching for a dramatic, very different looking plant that can be as small as 6″ or as tall as a tree, an Alocasia plant is a great choice. These plants do require extra care and attention. Alocasia plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children.
