Alocasia Zebrina Tiger - Elephant Ear
Available for collection from the shop on Monday 7th September 2020
The Alocasia Zebrina Tiger has arrow shaped leaves and a distinctive, striped stems which is where it gets its names from. The leaves have a wonderfully deep, glossy texture.
They are a jungle plant so are happy in either a well lit, bright area, or even in a more shaded room with indirect light. Direct sunlight will scorch the leaves so keep out of the strong afternoon sun.
They are a real jungle plant so try to keep the soil slightly moist and check this once a week by pressing your finger into the soil. The plant should certainly not be standing in a layer of water.
They like humid air so they will enjoy being misted with water. This will also prevent the leaf edges drying out.
