Alocasia 'Portora' - Elephant's Ears


Alocasia 'Portora' - Elephant's Ears (Alocasia 'Portora' - Elephant's Ears)

My Elephant's ear plant is growing a new leaf. The leaves are kind of small for this plant. Usually, the leaves are much larger. Photo taken Oct. 31, 2011.

Interesting looking plant ! How big does it grow ?

Yes, Alocasia species grow very large here. I think you have Colocasia esculenta, which grows very large leaves and is very closely related to Alocasia, except doesn't have a trunk. Colocasia species are commonly grown here, also. They can grow very large, too.

I wish you the best of luck with your Colocasia esculenta! As long as it's in a warm spot it should continue to grow leaves. :>)

That's great! I do like some of the Colocasia hybrids. I used to have Colocasia 'Hilo Beauty', 'Black Magic' and few others.
