Alocasia (Elephant Ear) is a member of the Arum family and grows in the tropical rainforests of South-East Asia. It’s particularly common in Borneo and can reach a height of four metres. There are 79 known species.

Alocasias need bright, but indirect light. This is due to the plant's natural habitat, on the forest floor beneath the tree canopy. Direct sun will cause the leaves to burn, so avoid placing your Alocasia in a spot where it'll be exposed to direct sun for a prolonged period.

If you have children or pets, you might want to avoid these plants altogether because the leaves are toxic to humans and animals. They can be harmful if the plant material is chewed on or swallowed. These plants contain oxalate crystals that can cause mouth pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
