About the Alocasia Polly

This dramatic indoor plant has a striking aesthetic. Its dark green, glossy foliage is marked with a pale linear pattern and deep purple underneath. Each leaf of this house plant is like an artwork in itself.

Common names for this indoor plant include The African Mask Plant and Elephant Ear, due to its resemblance. 

Native to the tropical South Pacific Islands, these plants are accustomed to warm and humid environments. So misting is recommended for this indoor plant.

Occasionally, Alocasia Polly will bloom and produce flowers. However, it also has a dormant period in which leaves will fade and drop off. This indoor plant is relatively easy to maintain once you follow our helpful guides.

Your indoor plant currently lives in a 12cm nursery pot. 

They're 35cm in height from pot base to leaf tip and in the right conditions and with proper care can reach a size of roughly 60-70cm.

Whilst we maintain the best standard possible, plants can vary slightly from the photograph from season to season.

Care Guide

This indoor plant requires a bright, well-lit space. Avoid direct sunlight as it may harm the leaves.

Water your Alocasia Polly little and often. Keep the soil moist and avoid letting it dry out. Occasional misting and a warm spot are best as this indoor plant thrives in warmth and humidity.

We advise feeding this house plant with fertilizer once a month during the growing season in spring and summer.

These plants can go dormant during the winter months due to the colder temperatures, resulting in them dropping some or all of their leaves. Keep the compost moist even if there is no visible growth above the surface, when the weather gets warmer the plant should begin to grow again.

These plants are considered to be toxic if ingested so it is best to keep them out of reach of curious children and pets.

Your Alocasia Polly - Elephant Ear can reach a height of 60-70cm meters with time and the right care and attention.
