Commonly known as the Giant Elephant Ear plant, this Alocasia can grow to a substantial size. In the wild these plants can grow up to four meters tall! This Alocasia has dark glossy leaves, with a beautiful burgandy undertone. Native to the rainforest of southeastern Asia, your Wentii will give your home that tropical vibe everyone is dreaming of.
Give your Alocasia wentii plenty of bright, filtered light. Avoid direct sun for long periods of time, or give it a sheltered position. Intense direct light may bleach the leaves. Your Alocasia should be fine with average room humidity, but be mindful of dry air as this can crisp up the leaves. During summer periods they can be thirsty, but always allow at least half the medium to dry out as they need oxygen around their roots. Over winter reduce the frequency of watering as Alocasias can go through a dormancy period when it's cold.
If you're looking for a plant to grow large and dominate a space, an Alocasia is for you!
All plants are sold in their nursery pots. Decorative pots are sold seperately. You can choose your style pot from head our Pot Collection. Wentii fits our large Bali pots and our large or XL Almada pots.
Do not pot directly into our decorative pots. It's much better for your plant to keep it in its nursery pot to allow adequate drainage.
