Elephant Ear Zebra Plant Overview

Alocasia zebrina is a tender, rhizomatous, evergreen perennial that originates from South-East Asia. It is typically grown for the foliage, which is large, bright green, arrow-shaped and borne on fantastically zebra-patterned stems. Commonly known by the names Elephant Ear Zebra Plant or Zebra Alocasia. It is frequently grown indoors as a houseplant, this plant does best when provided with ample humidity. Placement in a bathroom or kitchen, in bright but indirect light is advised, ensure soil is a well-draining mix to prevent waterlogging to the roots.
