Upright Elephant Ear Alocasia odora from Netherland Bulb Company – Thick, glossy, upright foliage gives a tropical look in the garden or in containers. Proliferates in moist soil, but also thrives in normal garden soil in full sun to partial shade. Take care not to over water as this will stunt the leaf growth. Excellent plant for containers which can then be easily lifted in northern climates where they may not survive the winter if left unprotected.
