More info

The Alocasia, also called elephant ears, are beautiful plants in the regions of Southeast Asia. They are commonly known by this name as the wind-torn leaves recall the ears of an elephant. Well, well, it is even in temperate climates. The name of this genus was given by resemblance to that of a very similar genus (Colocasia) that once understood it. These are evergreen, rhizomatic plants. They are poisonous for the presence of calcium oxalate crystals in all green parts of the plant. In larger plants, the wonderful leaves can grow up to half a meter high. The flowering of this plant resembles very much that of the Spatifillo, which produces white "spate", but is very rare if grown as an apartment plant.

Exposure and brightness: It is cultivated in a rather bright environment but does not like direct sunlight. To avoid being "oriented" towards the light source must be turned from time to time.

Temperature: Ideal cultivation temperatures are between 20-24 ° C and should not fall below 15 ° C.

Soil type: Needed soil rich in peat and sand mixed with leaves to favor drainage.

Irrigation: Abundant in the summer period, keeping the soil damp, smaller in winter. Spray regularly to ensure proper humidity.

Fertilization: From spring until the beginning of autumn every 15 days with fertilizer for flowering plants NPK rich in microelements, mixed with water.

N.B. The specifications described above may vary depending on the climate of the area where the plant is placed and the season.
