THE MINIATURE ELEPHANT EAR
NEVER OVER ABOUT THREE FEET TALL
Customers often shy away from the regular Elephant Ear Alocasia because of it’s potential size of up to eight feet with huge leaves. There is even one species that gets super tall and almost takes over the garden. But, what I’m showing you here (Alocasia Cal-Odora) is a true dwarf with plants that never get much above your knees. The leaves are a foot wide and color is green. They are an ideal plant where you want a low profile companion plant to cover the garden floor.
This species can take full coastal sun or part day sun and filtered light in all areas. They do like and respond to water. We sell a ton of these but do have limited supplies of five and fifteen gallon plants. We often put them on sale for reduced prices. When people see how they perform they often come back for more. In the firsts six photos below I’m showing the 5 gallon on sale. I’m showing a photo of a larger 15 gallon which is also available. Also, we offer super unusual and different types of Alocasia, so if you are a tropical plant freak, come and see us. I’d say right now we have about ten different species or hybrids of Alocasia.
