Elephant Ear 'Stingray'

English name:

Elephant Ear 'Stingray'

Latin name:

Alocasia 'Stingray'

About me:

I have mid-dark green large leaves that are wide and finish with a whiptail, much like the stingrays you'll find in the sea.

Useful to know:

Origin

I am from the tropical rainforests of Asia.

Height/Growth

If you look after me super well I could grow as tall as 1.8m.

Light

I like dappled or indirect light.

Water

I like my soil to be lightly moist, but when I'm small I'm vulnerable to root rot so do not overdo it.

Temperature

I like it warm and humid so keep me in an enclosed space.

Feeding

Please feed me diluted fertiliser once a month during the growing season.

Grooming

My leaves can get quite big and would like the occasional dusting. Prune away any damaged leaves.

Care

The most important thing is keeping my humitidy levels high. If I'm in a dry room, keep me warm and misted.

Toxicity

Keep me away from pets and children as I am toxic.

Fact

If it's warm and humid outside I could be moved to your patio or balcony, but keep an eye on the temperature.
