The Alocasia California is stunning tropical foliage on an upright, easy-to-grow plant. It is excellent in mixed plantings or as an individual specimen. Grow this plant indoors or outdoors (if you’re in the right region). This plant is loved for its elephant ear shape and ability to become gigantic! But don’t worry you can keep this plant smaller as well by growing inside. The Alocasia Elephant Ear is sure to give any room a tropical flare.
Elephant ears like partial sun exposure outdoors, or when grown indoors bright light. If leaves look bleached or burnt move the plant to a shadier spot. For watering, keep this plant consistently moist. Do not oversaturate. This plant also loves humidity!
About Our Plants
Our soil is custom blended and contains only the highest quality Canadian peat. We don’t try to cut cost with cheaper mixes. Additionally, all of our plants are grown with 100 to 180 day time release fertilizer so you won’t be running out of it just when the plants arrive. This is not the case with the quick release 30 day fertilizers that many other companies tend to use.
We do approximately 90% of our own liners. Since the cost is relatively inexpensive, we put twice as many liners in each container for many of the varieties. Accordingly, this makes for a much fuller plant.
All of our plants are given more than adequate spacing. For instance, most of the flowering bushes and trellis plants have 4 square feet of spacing. The Boston fern hanging baskets, for example, have 6 square feet. This allows our plants to grow as big and full as possible.
