zebra elephant's ears

    The large, arrow-shaped foliage of this impressive house plant is eye-catching, but it's the stems, which are imprinted with zebra-like stripes along their length, that really make it stand out from the crowd. Immediately creating a tropical feel to the room, they are perfect for a steamy bathroom or kitchen.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: These plants love a humid atmosphere, so keep them away from central heating radiators and either stand the pot on a tray of damp pebbles, or mist them regularly with water. 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.
  • Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant
