Alocasia × amazonica Polly & pot cover combination

  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Soil: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 50cm (including pot)
  • Pot covers: includes a 18cm pot cover

    A truly impressive plant that is mainly grown for its heavily-veined, dark green leaves - although it will occasionally produce a yellow spathe flower too. Like its namesake (elephants ear), the leaves are large, which is why they make a really big impact.

  • Home care: This plants needs warmth and humidity. If you have a warm, light bathroom that could be perfect. Otherwise stand the pot on a tray of damp pebbles to try and keep the humidity levels up and or mist regularly. Keep the temperature minimum of 16°C, warmer if possible. Water regularly in the summer, reducing through the winter, and feed with a liquid feed in spring/ summer every 3-4 weeks.
