Alocasia Zebrina is also known as the Elephant Ear Plant and a Zebra Alocasia. It's a stunning tropical plant with unusual shaped leaves and beautiful zebra-like patterns on the stems. They need a little more care than the average houseplant, but that bit of effort definitely pays off. It really is a stunning plant which will grab the attention of all your friends and family. If you are looking for an exotic and unusual houseplant, then this is an excellent choice!

This plant will be happiest in bright, but indirect light. Intense, direct sun will likely scorch the leaves. The best spot for this plant is near an east- or west-facing window. They are fast growing and will produce new leaves often, as old foliage dies off, new leaves emerge.

How to care for your Alocasia Zebrina

Native habitat

This plant is native to the Philippines.

Light and position in the home

This plant will be happiest in bright, but indirect light. Intense, direct sun will likely scorch the leaves. The best spot for this plant is near an east- or west-facing window. This plant will grow in the direction of the sun, so a good tip is to rotate it 90 degrees after each watering to ensure all sides of the plant are receiving sunlight, and to encourage even foliage growth.

Watering

The Alocasia zebrina is a water-loving plant, but the key is to water little and often, making sure the top few inches of soil is dry before the next watering. Although they need frequent watering, it's important they are not sat in wet soil, so ensure the soil is free-draining and the plant is in a pot with drainage holes.
