Alocasia is a genus of broad-leaved rhizomatous or tuberous perennials from the family Araceae.

  • There are 79 species native to tropical and subtropical Asia to Eastern Australia, and widely cultivated elsewhere.
  • Alocasia are tropical plants that are increasingly becoming popular as houseplants.
  • They are typically grown as pot plants, but a better way is to grow the plants permanently in the controlled conditions of a greenhouse.
  • They do not do well in the dark and need good lighting if inside the house.
  • They should be cared for as any other tropical plant with weekly cleaning of the leaves and frequent fine water misting without leaving the plants wet.
  • Also known as Elephant’s ear, African Mask, alocasia colorations, leaf patterns and overall plant size vary greatly by cultivar.
