Toxic to pets.
Care Level High
The Elephant Ear 'Regal Shields' needs lots of love and attention with bright indirect light, high humidity and consistent moisture.
Indoors: Bright, indirect light Outdoors: Morning part shade (4-6 hours)
Keep the soil consistently moist (but not soggy). Let it dry between waterings on the top 1-2 inches of the soil.
Keep high humidity around this plant at an average of 65-80%. Add a gravel tray, or use a humidifier or group with other plants. Don't spritz as it can cause foliar disease.
Air Quality Great
Cleans, filters and purifies the air in your home or office.
The Alocasia 'Regal Shields' thick and durable green leaves show off with dark purple-tinged undersides. The light green veins on the upper surface and purple-yellow-green veins on the lower surface gives an unusual color distinction to any room. Growing up to 9' tall and 4' wide makes this one a focal point to any brightly lit room!
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.
