Alocasia (Elephant Ears)

Elephant's ears are stunning houseplants. They often feature dark, shield-shaped foliage that may be accentuated by white veins running throughout the leaves. The plants will flower occasionally, sending up a spike with a calla-like white, light yellow, or cream bloom, but the foliage is the reason the plant is grown. Elephant's ear is the perfect plant for high-humidity areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.
