Alocasia Macrorrhiza


Alocasia Macrorrhiza, commonly called giant taro, are a stunning species of Alocasia treasured for its giant ornamentally decorative leaves which resemble the ears of an elephant.


Light: Macrorrhiza can tolerate some degree of shade, but the better the light conditions, the larger and more dramatic the leaves will grow. Try to avoid the bright sun in the middle of the day.

Water: Keep Alocasia plants moist all year; they are water-loving plants. There is a fine line with these plants. You want to keep the soil moist, but not soggy. They require less water during the winter months because the plant is dormant.


The plant you will receive will be close to the one in the picture. As living creatures, like us, they all grow differently, are individuals and slightly different, which is excellent! 

If you choose pot size 120mm the plant will be anywhere between 15-20cm centimetres in height from top of the pot.

When grown indoors and under the right conditions, Macrorrhiza can grow between 1 to 1.5 meters in height.

Plants come in nursery growing pots. Decorative pots, the plant is photographed in is not included in price. However, we are sourcing cool decorative pots, and they will soon become available :)
