SMALL-Alocasia maccrorhizos, vareigated elephant ears
Plants are similar in appearance and size to the one in the photos and will have a minimum of 2 leaves with some variegation. Photo is an example only
This one is a stunning member of the elephant ear family, with heavily variegated foliage, of white and pale green. It is also referred to as Alocasia macrorrhizos (also 'macrorrhiza') 'Variegata', or 'Variegata alba’.
In tropical climates, this one is a very fast grower, with leaves reaching a maximum length of up to 1 metre. This is not the case in the southern States of Australia, and grows at a much slower rate. If being grown in these conditions or indoors, it may die down to its bulb but will re-shoot once the weather warms.
This plant measures approx 10 to 15cm in height from soil level.
This can be sensitive to posting (turning brown on some occasions) but will recover quickly with TLC.
A bit on the thirsty side, this plant likes well drained soil with regular watering.

I can't say I was overly impressed with this plant. I expected a small plant but not something so tiny for the price. Well packaged for posting. Plant not in bad condition but I am concerned about how it will do given its stems are so white. there is not much green in the new leaf which is nearly all white and there is a lot of white in the only other remaining leaf. I feel this plant should have been grown on some more before it was sold to see how it would do as again concerned about the amount of white in it, which while very pretty, will have a fairly big impact on its ability to photosynthesize and therefore survive.
I was very impressed with the quality of the plants I ordered & how well they were packaged. They arrived completely intact & were very healthy looking. Will definitely be back for more!
Love these plants including the quality and service of the business. Highly recommend and will definitly be ordering more
I love my plant , packaging was excellent and very fast delivery can’t fault !
Only disappointed in the size of the plant but that’s my mistake for not reading into it more
I have a non-variegated elephant ear that I love so much, especially how easy they are to care for. When I saw HoH had variegated ones available I had to get one. The plant was actually bigger than I had expected it to be. The variegation was beautiful! Arrived in perfect condition with moist soil and no tearing of the foliage. Thank you!!
