Alocasia tigrina - Tiger Elephant's Ears


Alocasia tigrina - Tiger Elephant's Ears (Alocasia tigrina - Tiger Elephants Ears)

My Tiger Elephant's Ears plant is very tall almost 6 feet/ 2meter tall. The petioles have stripes like a tiger...the reason why I call it 'Tiger Elephant's Ears. The leaves are blue-green and very strongly arrow-shaped. Photo taken Feb. 19, 2010.

This photo doesn't do this plant justice. It's absolutely beautiful in person! I want to put it into the ground under my shade structure when it's built...however, I haven't been able to find out exactly how tall it gets...and it's pretty tall already. I have a feeling it's going to grow more than 10 feet/3.1 meters tall.
