The remarkable Alocasia, also known as Elephant’s Ear, Kris Plant or African Mask (due to its resemblance to hand-carved ceremonial masks), is a real tropical superstar. Originating from tropical and subtropical parts of Asia and Eastern Australia, there are 79 known species of Alocasia, and some varieties boast leaves that can grow up to almost three feet in length. Because, like you, we love adding unique additions to our urban jungle, we are offering 2 for 1 on all Alocasia this Friday!
With their enormous, unique and beautifully formed heart-shaped leaves, it’s plain to see how it was nicknamed ‘Elephant’s Ear’.

This house plant can be quite fussy, however. Thriving conditions include a moderately bright spot with no direct sunlight. Help them to reach their potential by placing your HoK Alocasia near a north facing window ledge, so it is not exposed to harsh, mid-day light. This plant doesn’t enjoy lower light conditions, so make sure it’s in a spot that feels very bright. An Alocasia really appreciates humidity, so a very bright corner in your bathroom should satisfy their lighting needs.
As for watering requirements, ensure their soil is kept moist throughout. It’s best not to let the soil dry out completely between watering. So, to gauge if it needs a drink, check the very top surface layer of the soil, and if that’s dry, your Alocasia is ready for water!
