Alocasia Micholitziana ‘Frydek’

Alocasia is also known as Elephant's ears and they are stunning houseplants. They often feature dark, shield-shaped foliage that may be accentuated by white veins running throughout the leaves. The plants will flower occasionally, sending up a spike with a calla-like white, light yellow, or cream bloom, but the foliage is the reason the plant is grown.

Lighting: Elephant's ear grows best in bright light. Too much direct sun, especially in hot-summer climates, can burn the leaves, so these exotic indoor plants benefit from the protection of a sheer curtain from the window.  

Humidity: Being true tropicals, they love humidity, so boost moisture levels in the air if it's especially dry.

Watering: Water as needed, when the top inch or two of the soil dries to the touch. 

Fertilization: Fertilize elephant's ear a couple of times a year to keep it healthy. The best seasons are spring and summer. Use any fertilizer formulated for use on houseplants.
