About
The very beautiful alocasia zebrina owes its name to the yellow and black zebra print-esque markings found on its stems that contrast with its lush green leaves. Its leaves are in fact believed to mirror the floppy ears of an elephant – hence the alocasia zebrina’s other name, ‘elephant ear’.

Pot Size 19.5cm diameter x 16.5 cm tall, plant approx 75cm tall

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.
