The Alocasia Dark Star lives up to its sci-fi name in both size and origin. This incredible plant is bred from four different varieties of elephant ear, delivering us a hybrid that combines incredible size with impressive cold tolerance for this tropical stunner. This plant is a conversation piece - it can grow as tall as 6 feet high, with leaves as wide as a grown woman!. For added depth and a tres chic vibe, the deep purple of the stem can be seen as royal purple veins in each leaf.

Fun Facts

Never let 'em see you sweat. That saying doesn't go for the Alocasia. It will sweat droplets of moisture at the tip of its leaves and may show up in the mornings. Guttation, as it's called in the horticulture world, is a way to restore balance to their nutrient and water content.
