This stunning Alocasia in a pot is a lovely addition to anyone’s indoor plant collection. This plant, native to Asia, is also called an Elephant Ear plant or African Mask plant because of its very large, glossy, heart-shaped leaves with wavy edges.
Alocasias need bright, but indirect light. This is due to the plant’s natural habitat, on the forest floor beneath the tree canopy. Direct sun will cause the leaves to burn, so avoid placing your Alocasia in a spot where it’ll be exposed to direct sun for a prolonged period. This plant is not tolerant of lower light conditions though, so place yours in a bright spot.
