If you thought the Monstera were massive, wait until you see the elephant ear.

300mm pot Large

Elephant ear plants clearly get their nickname from the wonderfully gigantic size of their heart-shaped (or elephant ear-shaped!) leaves. There are many varieties and cultivars that span the spectrum of green, purple, white variegated leaves.

Elephant ears belong to two related groups of plants, Colocasia and Alocasia. Both types can be grown in the garden or as houseplants, though alocasia's are more often planted outdoors (they’re generally larger) and alocasia's are a bit more common as houseplants.

You can’t expect your elephant ear plant to grow as large indoors as it would outside, but that’s probably a good thing considering a single leaf can grow to be two feet wide and stems can reach five or more feet, depending on the variety.

Light

Elephant ears need bright sunlight when grown indoors, but nothing too harsh. If you notice the leaves are looking bleached or singed, move it to a dimmer spot or add a sheer curtain. Outdoors they do well in partial shade.

Water

Elephant ears like to stay consistently moist, but not soggy. Be especially careful with watering if you use a pot without drainage holes. Always test the soil with your finger first. Humidity is also important to elephant ears, so it’s a good idea to set the pot in a saucer of water elevated by pebbles. (The pebbles will prevent the roots from sitting directly in the water, which will cause rotting.

      We recommend the Australian made Munash Organics soil food & foliage spray or The Plant Runner plant food or neem oil to keep you plants happy and healthy!
