Good morning friends, today we will love to talk to you about the Alocasia plant. This is ideal for decorating our exteriors, providing great color notes.
In addition to Alocasia, this plant is also known as elephant ear. Belonging to the Araceae family, its stem is usually thick and fleshy. This path will grow for 3 years, whose height can reach perfectly up to five meters … ideal for landscaping.
Its leaves are arranged in the form of an arrow, with fully marked nerves … this makes its leaves look large and beautiful, also to decorate interior areas.
As a plant it is very simple to maintain, easy to care for and of course perfect for indoor environments and for those who do not have too much time to take care of the plants.
Alocasia, as a plant, is very easy to care for so that it reaches its maximum exponent and it is also perfect for decorating both outdoor areas and our indoor areas.
The origin of this plant is found in India and in Sri Lanka. As we have said before, this plant can easily reach up to five meters high. Its leaves are very striking, green and can reach the meter long.
As we have said we can also plant it indoors, but it is a fairly large plant, so we will have to have space.
Perhaps to have inside our home or if you have a terrace, the ideal Wentii truth would be .. this plant is the same as Alocasia, but in a smaller version.
Its leaves are marbled, with some spots in a beautiful white – gray color. If it is planted outdoors it develops small and pleasant leaves, they are scented and scarce … not being born all at once.
As a curious thing we tell you that in some places the flowers are used to feed both animals and people. This is because they contain large amounts of protein and carbohydrates in the form of starch.
From the leaves we can also say that they contain vitamins A and also C .. in addition to this type of leaves the latex can be extracted.
In the space of tomorrow we will tell you a little more about this extraordinary plant that we can grow both at home and abroad. We will give some advice for its maintenance and care, for its cultivation and we will know what the ideal pot for planting will be.
