The Alocasia lauterbachiana has uniquely shaped big dark green leaves with purple flowers, purple veins in the centre and the purple undersides of the leaves. It has sturdy stems that support its upright leaf structure. The leaves of this plant are narrow and are decorated with scalloped waves which run down the edges and resemble that of an elephant ear.
Caring for this plant is similar to other Elephant Ear Plants. It grows best under bright, indirect light. If grown outdoors, it prefers shelter from the hot afternoon sun and a warm spot. Watering can be done about once a week, allowing top 1-2 inches of soil to dry out between waterings.
The Lauterbachiana needs clean leaves to photosynthesise in order to feed itself. Regularly wipe its leaves or give it a full shower every now and then to remove accumulated dust.
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
