Alocasia 'Metal Head'

  • Sometimes called "elephant ears" for its enormous (2 feet + long) leaves on mature plants.
  • Arrowhead shaped, metallic grey-green leaves with a light sheen, and purplish undersides.
  • Young plants will take several years to reach the full size.

Care:

  • Light: Bright, indirect (east or west window). Leaves may scorch if exposed to hot afternoon sun.
  • Water: Keep evenly moist, but do not allow the pot to sit in water.
  • Fertilizer: Use an all-purpose fertilizer such as Schultz Indoor Plant Food (10-15-10) twice monthly.
  • Other tips: Grows best in an undersized pot. Use well-drained potting mix; we recommend Pro-Mix Tropical Plant Mix. Leaf margins may brown under very low humidity; mist frequently or use a humidifier if necessary. Plants may go dormant, dying back to the tuber; allow to rest for 8-12 weeks, then resume watering to encourage re-growth.

*Please note we do not ship live plants. All plants must be picked up in-store or curbside.
