Description

The Alocasia, also known as Elephant's Ear, comes from the tropical forests of South Asia. The plant needs a lot of sunlight, so you should place it in an area with plenty of indirect light.

However, the plant can survive in semi-shaded zones too. It is essential that you allow the plant to get used to the amount of sunlight.

Provide the Alocasia with lukewarm water at least once a week. Keep a check on the soil and feel if it needs any more water. It is better to water the plant more often than watering it once and too much.
