Alocasia bambino arrowElephant Ear
Easy to care
Modesty becomes the plant – certainly in the case of the Alocasia Bambino Arrow. This ornamental plant, also called Elephant Ear owing to the shape of its leaves, is well suited to smaller spaces. The Alocasia grows no taller than 40 centimetres and has elegant, distinctive leaves. This small bit of jungle also takes care of purifying the air.
Keep the plant moist and avoid desiccation. Use room-temperature water, a bit more in the summer than in the winter. Ensure sufficient humidity, and to this end, spraying will also help.
The splendid leaves of the Alocasia are thin and consequently sensitive. Put the plant in a bright spot where there is little risk of brushing against the leaves and avoid direct sunlight. The plant will also do fine in less well illuminated spots as long as the room temperature is around 20 degrees.
