Houseplant & Indoor Plant Care

Elephant Ear Polly Care Guide

Alocasia's are very adaptable plants and cope well in from low light through to bright but indirect light. If you'd like it to push out leaves more frequently position in a brighter spot. Even, consistent watering is best. Little and often rather than saturating the soil as they are prone to root rot.

Collapsible content

What is the Elephant Ear Polly Known For?

The Elephant Ear Polly is renowned for its striking arrowhead or shield-shaped leaves with bold veins that stand out against a contrasting dark backdrop. Its distinctive appearance makes it a statement piece in any collection of houseplants.

What Is the History of the Elephant Ear Polly?

Alocasia Amazonica, although named after the Amazon, is actually a hybrid that originated from human cultivation. Its precise ancestral origins are not clear, but it is believed to be a cross between Alocasia longiloba and Alocasia sanderiana, both native to the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia.

Where Does the Elephant Ear Polly Originate?

Despite its name, the Elephant Ear Polly is not from the Amazon but is a man-made hybrid. The parent species are indigenous to Southeast Asia, where they grow in warm and humid environments that are replicated by plant enthusiasts in indoor settings.

How Do You Care for a Elephant Ear Polly?

Proper care for an Elephant Ear Polly involves mimicking its native tropical habitat. It thrives in bright, indirect light with high humidity and a consistent temperature range. The soil should be well-draining yet kept moist. Water the plant when the top inch of soil becomes dry to the touch, and consider using a humidifier to maintain the ideal humidity around the plant.

Are Elephant Ear Polly Toxic to Pets?

No, the Elephant Ear Polly is not considered safe for pets. Similar to other Alocasia varieties, it contains insoluble calcium oxalates, which can cause irritation and swelling of the mouth, tongue, and throat if ingested by animals.
