INDOOR PLANT - Alocasia Green Shield in 12cm pot

This tropical indoor plant is part of the Alocasia group of plants, or elephant ear plants, known for their large leaves. 
Alocasia Clypeolata, commonly known as Alocasia 'Green Shield' is a vigorous elephant ear. Its thick leaves are quite leathery and resemble scales.


Thrives best in bright conditions to partial light shade. Avoid direct sunlight as this will scorch the leaves. Requires high humidity to be happy and is sensitive to the cold.


Alocasia plants tend to thrive best with a constantly moist soil. "a little less in the winter, a little more in the summer" -  but preferably no large quantities in one go! Do not allow the soil to dry out. Little and often is a good approach.


This Alocasia will be best planted in a 17cm Mr Kitly pot, allowing great circulation for the plant. If a ceramic plant is more your style look for a pot approximately 15cm in diameter and with drainage - an Evergreen Collective Finch Pot for example would make an ideal combination. 

If you'd like us to do the dirty work for you simply request your plant to be potted into your chosen pot and we'll take care of the rest!

*Note: The plant shown is an indication of how healthy and fabulous all of our hand selected plants are! Your plant may not be the exact plant pictured but it will be of the same quality.
