Alocasia Dark Star
Alocasia Dark Star features big, beautiful, heart-shaped emerald-green leaves on upright stems. Both the stems and veins of each leaf are a contrasting dark purple to the green, especially as they age. It is a cross between four different elephant ear varieties, selected with the goal of creating a hybrid that has larger leaves and can withstand cooler temperatures. In prime conditions, it can reach over 6 ft. high with leaves up to 5 ft. wide! Alocasia is toxic to both people and animals, so they are not to be ingested.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
