Elephant ears like to stay consistently moist, but not soggy. Be especially careful with watering if you use a pot without drainage holes. Always test the soil with your finger first. Humidity is also important to elephant ears, so it's a good idea to set the pot in a saucer of water elevated by pebbles.


Elephant Ears are tropical plants and cannot tolerate any frost. They only emerge when the soil is warm. Select a location in full sun or part sun with a good, rich, moist, organic soil.


Water: Alocasia Polly enjoy weekly watering sessions and frequent misting, keeping their soil moist but not wet. In winter, we recommend allowing the top 2' of soil to dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering and root rot.


Be sure to keep an Alocasia plant away from air conditioners and cold drafts. During warm summer months, an Alocasia can produce a new leaf every week and each new leaf may be twice the size of the previous leaf. Alocasia plants grow best in high humidity. ... Do not mist the plant; misting encourages plant diseases
