Alocasia portodora - Elephant's Ears


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

My Elephant's Ear plant is almost 6 feet/ 1.8 meters tall from a 2 foot / 61 cm tall plant when I purchased and planted it last fall. The new emerging leaf will reach more than 6 feet/ 2 meters tall when it's fully grown. I think this plant will be 8 feet / 2.4 meters tall or taller by the end of Fall. Photo taken July 24, 2009.
