How to care for an Alocasia
The Alocasia plant family is beautiful and diverse. There are nearly 100 distinct species of Alocasia. They go by many different names such as Elephant's Ear, Giant Taro, and African Mask plant. They are part of the Araceae family which is more commonly known as the Aroid family. Aroids include plants like Pothos, Philodendron, and Monstera, many of which adapted to the dappled sunlight of the forest understory. Pseudonyms aside, the entire Alocasia family of plants has one thing in common: they all look stunning. All of them have big leaves and some of them can grow up to a metre in size! WOW!
