Alocasia Black Introduction

A genus of broad-leaved perennials, the Alocasia’s are native to the subtropical and tropic Eastern Australia to Asia, although they are also cultivated in other regions as well. It is also known as the Kris Plant or Elephant Ear. The trademark broad leaves of the plant genus makes for beautiful plants to be kept inside the house. The Alocasia plants are extremely easy to grow, staying a bloom for nearly half of the year. The plants are herbaceous perennial, implying that their stems are not of wood and they bloom twice a year.

The flowers on the plant are rare. Spotting flowers on the Alocasia is a once-in-a-while event on a well looked after plant. Therefore, the prime attraction of the plant is its beautiful foliage, which makes it an excellent ornamental plant. The common Elephant Ear Plant grows beautiful leaves that makes it great for plant lovers which are newbies in the gardening skills. With a little bit of effort, these plants can adorn any household well.

The height and spread of the Alocasia can vary from 2 to 6 feet. Locations that are protected from strong winds after the frost date are preferable for the plant. Direct sunlight as well as entirely dark areas are not suited to the plant. It must be kept in areas where the lighting is mediocre – neither too bright, nor too gloomy. The soil used for the Alocasia must be a fast draining peat based mix. These plants have an affinity for water. A diluted balanced fertilizer is ideal for feeding once every two weeks from the spring till the end of August.


  • Every plant has different type of light, feed and water requirements.
  • Most of the plants like moderate watering, let the couple of inch at surface dry before watering again.
  • Some plants require frequent feeding but most, once in a year, feed the plant at beginning of spring.
  • Repot the plant every couple of years in slightly bigger container.


  • Avoid frequent watering in winters, it will kill the plant.
  • Avoid temperature shocks like taking it suddenly indoors or outdoors.
  • Avoid partial watering and use water sprayers to water equally in all directions.
  • Avoid repotting plants in large containers, most of the plants likes to be in groups.
  • Avoid over fertilizing, quantity depends on NPK ingredients but plants do need not more than a spoon.


Plants are living creatures require a little sensitivity towards them, following common instructions are helpful for keeping them happy:
  • Dig around the root zone with your fingers to a depth of 2-3' for small plants and water generously when the soil feels dry to the touch.
  • Use a balanced fertilizer i.e., 10-10-10, 14-14-14 (Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K)) food with micro-nutrients.
  • Be observant of the changes in plant vigor and growth, plants are more susceptible to disease and pests if they are weakened through poor maintenance.
  • It is good to make it a practice to inspect plants progress so you can spot systems of disease or insect infestations well in advance of any serious problem.
