About
The Alocasia Portodoro, also known as Elephant Ears plant or Asian Taro, is native to  Southeastern Asia. In summer, it can grow a new leaf every week, sometimes twice the size of the previous week's growth. It is a sensitive plant and needs attentive care, especially in the winter.

Care

Light: A bright room, but indirect sunlight. Brighter light will earn you larger leaves.

Water: Alocasias hate wet feet, but they hate to dry out, too -- you'll see the stalks droop if it gets too thirsty. Give it a relatively small amount of water every few days, perhaps a cup, as soon as the top inch of compost feels dry, and then let drain.

Humidity: Likes a moist environment - a bathroom is ideal, otherwise misting often will be just as good. 

Temperature: This plant hates a draft, and needs to be kept warm at all times.
