Alocasia maccrorhizos-LARGE-variegated elephant ear
You are buying the plant pictured in the photos with excellent variegation.
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 38cm in height from soil level and 38 cm in width from left to right.
A bit on the thirsty side, this plant likes well drained soil with regular watering

I ordered plants using the website platform. I further had a discussion with Jo about my order unsure of how it would arrive once delivered. Not only did she put me at ease but the product delivered was top quality, undamaged and received within two days. Not only is this a well oiled operation but also a professional and approachable business. Well done to Jo I will be purchasing from her again.
Thanks Jo, my plant arrived quickly and in excellent health. The extra request I asked for was done as asked with no fuss and no stress. 10 out of 10.
