Glossy thick leaves that are held up by red stems, this is the Alocasia Yucatan Princess. She originates from the tropical rainforest in Southeast asia. Due to her big pointed leaves, she is sometimes compared to the ears of an elephant. In the wild these leaves can become absolutely enormous! This benefits the animals that leave nearby, since they use her as a hiding place. Unfortunately, this does not mean that she is safe to have around our animals. She is poisonous to ingest, so always be careful with pets and (small) children.

This princess is not the easiest to care for. She can even ‘cry’ from overwatering. Little droplets will appear on her leaves and this is a sign from overwatering. This is called ‘guttation’. She prefers to have small splashes of water multiple times a week. She likes to stay moist but doesn’t like to have wet feet. She will really appreciate a nice spot with bright indirect light and humidity of 60% or higher.
