    Alocasia Amazonica

    Alocasia Amazonica is a hybrid plant of Alocasia Longiloba and Alocasia Sanderiana that are native to Asia although this one is from America.

    This plant commonly called Alocasia Polly is known as African Mask or Elephant Ear for its incredible color, shape, and resistance of its foliage that is hard, rub-resistant, and arrow-shaped. Furthermore, the thin the stems make the leaves to look bigger.

    Alocasias are tropical plants that like hot environments, with high humidity and therefore, they grow in humid soil and full of organic matter. In nature, they grow in the shade of tall trees that are filtered by the sun's rays.

    If you're planning to have alocasias at home, be careful if you have children or animals because all alocasias are considered moderately toxic plants if ingested

    Alocasia Melo

    Alocasia Melo is an exotic plant native to the Southeast Asian forests, specifically Indonesia, which tends to grow in rocky terrain, unlike other alocasias. This alocasia is considered a small plant because although in nature it can grow up to 23 inches in height, as a houseplant it is not usual, and does not exceed 15 inches approximately.

    Alocasia Melo is commonly known as Alocasia Rugosa for its unique foliage. Its leaves are green, large, and thick with a rough texture that makes it look like an artificial plant. Alocasias grow in tropical forests in the shade of higher vegetation, which is why it should not be given direct sunlight.

    If you have animals or children, you must take extreme precautions because alocasias are toxic plants when ingested.
