Alocasia Polly

$15 $20

Alocasia Polly, aka the African Mask Plant, Elephant Ear, Amazon Taro, Alocasia Amazonica Polly, is native to subtropical Asia and Australia. Its dark green leaves are shaped like an arrowhead with highly defined silvery green veins. They can grow up to 30cm long and are arrow shaped. Alocasia is toxic to both people and animals, so not to be ingested.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine. Keep them away from intense direct sun.
They like bright indirect sunlight, but can also grow in medium light situations. A good bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that right next to a window.
This plant likes to be consistently moist, but not soggy. Water thoroughly when the surface of the soil is dry.
They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist regularly. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. It doesn't mean they'll die if they don't get enough humidity, they may get some crunch edges or yellow rims if they don't have enough humidity but will survive.
Alocasia Polly can easily be propagated in water because of its semi-aquatic, swamp-dwelling ancestors. During the plant’s dormancy, move it to somewhere warm and reduce your watering until it starts growing again in spring.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
