    Alocasia Portora

    Alocasia Portora is one of the largest alocasias that you can find and that is why it is commonly used in outdoor spaces although it has begun to be commercialized for large and bright spaces.

    This impressive alocasia is commonly known as elephant ear because of the shape of its leaves. Most alocasias are medium size, but unlike those, the Alocasia Portora can grow up to 4-5ft in good conditions such as abundant water, a substrate rich in organic matter, high humidity, and above all a lot of bright light even direct sunlight.

    A curious fact is that Alocasia Portora is really an alocasia, unlike Alocasia Amazonica or other plants commonly known as alocasias that are actually colocasia. The main difference between alocasia vs colocasia is that the leaves of the alocasia point upwards, while the leaves of the colocasia are horizontal or point downwards.

    Alocasia Stingray

    Alocasia Stingray is an exotic and rare plant that is easy to keep alive as it does not require excessive care. Although it is an easy plant, it is not a recommended plant for beginners as it is sensitive to temperature and humidity.

    This elephant ear is becoming popular and is famous for its large leaf with a unique shape that has a long upturned tail that reminds us of a stingray. Like some other alocasias, it needs bright indirect light (south or west-facing windows are best as long as it is indirect light) and loves damp, well-drained soil mixed with organic matter as these are the characteristics of its natural habitat.

    Alocasia Stingray looks similar to differentiate Alocasia Zebrina because they both have a deep green color on the leaves and a similar pattern and color on the stem.

    Although their similarities, It is easy to differ Alocasia Stingray of Alocasia Zebrina by the shape of the leaves. Alocasia Stingray leaves are rounder and have a pointed finish, while Alocasia Zebrina leaves are triangular with an arrow shape.

    Alocasia is toxic if ingested, so they are not plants safe for cats, dogs neither children. With that being said, it doesn't mean you can't get one. Personally, I have a cat and we have plenty of plants that are toxic if ingested, but th does not pay attention to them. If he does, you might want to place these plants wherever he can't reach them.

    Ficus Elastica Tineke

    The Ficus elastica Tineke also known as variegated rubber tree or Ficus elastica Variegata, is a popular variety of ficus known for its beautiful big and watercolor variegated foliage that looks similar to Ficus Elastica Burgundy that everyone wants to have in the living room.

Ficus elastica is a drought-tolerant (but not so much) and can handle direct sunlight for a while thanks to its thick and shiny leaves.

    Ficus elastica is quite a versatile plant when it comes to light requirements, but all variegates plants will lose their variegation if placed in low light spots.

    oh, I almost forget! Over time, this amazing Ficus Elastica Variegata can grow up to 10 inches as a houseplant.

  • Ficus Lyrata

    Ficus Lyrata commonly known as Fiddle Leaf Fig is a ficus that has become very popular in recent years thanks to how elegant and beautiful it is, the large size of its leaves, and how easy it is to take care of it.

    The ficus Lyrata is a tree native to West Africa that grows in the rain forest and, like all plants, will increase in size as we give it more room to grow, reaching up to 10 meters. Its leaves are a uniform green color, soft and can measure up to 8 inches.

    Fiddle Leaf Fig is a little more delicate than Ficus Elastica because it needs more light, is more sensitive to water, and is used to losing leaves.

    If you have pets or small children be careful because it is toxic when ingested. That does not mean that you cannot have it, but it does mean that you must exercise extreme caution or attention.

    Monstera Deliciosa

    Monstera Deliciosa is recognizable by its large, glossy unique green leaves with deep splits and holes called fenestrations that appear when the plant matures.

    Monsteras are climbing plants native to southern Mexico and Central America that use its aerial roots to cling to large trees, so you should provide it with moss-covered support sticks or a trellis. If its aerial roots get unruly you can trim them, but it’s best to just tuck them back into the pot.

    Monsteras are toxic if ingested, so think it twice before getting one if you have cats, dogs or children.

    Monstera Pinnatipartita

    Monstera Pinnatipartita is a rare evergreen and beautiful climbing plant originally from South America that looks similar to Monstera Deliciosa. It has divided leaves when it matures and produces white waxy flowers that along with its aerial roots, make it look wildly.

    Monstera Pinnatipartita must not be placed in the direct sun for a long period because it will burn its leaves. Also, be mindful when getting a monstera home because they are mildly toxic if ingested, meaning that you should take precautions if you have pets or children. I've never had a bad experience with my pets myself because they have an instinct, but I always try to see how they react the first days after adding this plant to my collection.

    It is so recommended to use totems or to place it in a spot where it can trail to maximize its growth. As a houseplant it doesn't grow much compared to taking it outside, where it can take a whole big corner.It is so recommended to use totems or to place monsteras in a spot where they can trail to maximize its growth.
