Scientific name: Alocasia Zebrina
Common Names: Elephant Ears, Zebra Plant, Zebra Alocasia
The alocasia zebrina owes its name to the unique and eye-catching, yellow and black zebra print markings found on its stems that contrast with its lush green leaves. Its leaves are in fact believed to mirror the floppy ears of an elephant – hence the alocasia zebrina’s other name, ‘elephant ear’.
Re-potting: Alocasia Zebrina will only need to be re-potted every two years
