A Bit About Alocasia Plants

The wonderful Alocasias really are a family of tropical superstars. Their spectacular leaves create a really show-stopping display making them an ideal house plant for an urban jungle pad.

These awesome plants are a true fan of moist and warm conditions. Making friends with your Alocasia house plant is vital – get to know what it’s telling you is a sure fire way to success with these large indoor plants. They will tell you when they’ve had too much water – just keep an eye out for droplets of a watery solution from its leaves – this is the process of guttation. Guttation is the exudation of the plants sap on the tips or edges of the leaves – this is the Alocasias way of telling you it would like a little less water next time.

Alocasias are thanked in their natural habitat – being nicknamed the ‘Elephant Ear Plant’ – it offers shelter for all sorts of critters and creatures under the canopy of the rainforest.

The Alocasia is a great plant for dreamers or lovers of symbolism. It is said to be the plant in the Jack and the Beanstalk fairytale. The Alocasia stands for seizing the opportunity – even when it’s a tricky plant to climb!
