Alocasia Zebrina 120mm
ONLY AVAILABLE IN STORE
Another stunning tropical plant packed full of style, the Alocasia zebrina is low maintenance, requiring only indirect sunlight and watering when soil is dry. With long speckled stems and deep green, arrow shaped foliage, this is the perfect plant to add colour and texture to any home.
The leaves of the Zebrina Alocasia, like those of the other Alocasia, are similar to the ears of an elephant and this is why it is sometimes nicknamed Elephants Ears.
Plant Height: Approx 30cm
Care: The zebrina Alocasia is a plant that requires a lot of light (at least 5 hours a day): if too little is received, the leaves tend to sag.
The production of a waxy substance from the leaves is typical of this houseplant. The soil must always remain slightly damp and it is recommended to spray it frequently. In winter, the waterings of Alocasia must be reduced a lot, but the humidity on the leaves must remain constant as it is native to warm-humid climates. Fertililise in warmer months.
