The Alocasia macrorrhizos is truly a must in any tropical garden. Its large upright leaves which can grow up to 1m in length provides excellent texture contrast in a tropical garden, whilst also offering good shade to smaller growing under-story plants.
This plant will easily become the centre of attention in any garden with its dramatic gigantic leaves and thick rigid stalk. Commonly known as (Giant Elephant Ear) or (Giant Taro) alocasia macrorrhizo are fast growing tropical plants that perform best in partial shade with some protection from wind and full sun. A good rich and free draining soil, regular watering during the warmer months and an organic fertiliser is best for optimum plant health.
In cooler climates they can die back periodically - cut them off at the base with sharp secateurs and watch them flourish again when Spring arrives.
