    about this plant

    The baby Alocasia Zebrina is the princess of the plant savannah. With her beautiful zebra-striped stems she is a feast for the eyes. In nature her leaves grow so big that Alocasias are often called the ‘elephant's ear’ plant. For many animals in the South East Asian rainforest, the leaves of the Alocasia Zebrina, which can sometimes grow up to 100 centimetres in size, offer a safe hiding place. With your care she will grow into a beautiful houseplant and you’ll never get tired of the compliments!

    The Alocasia Zebrina don’t like dryness at the roots, but too much water will cause the roots to rot. Unlike conventional house plant watering wisdom the best approach is to water little but often. Tip: Use a pot with a drainage hole so any excess water can easily escape.

    My Zebrina arrived healthy despite its long journey to the UK. It’s even thrown out a new leaf already

    The little baby arrived with one dying leaf and one uncurled. Sadly it didn't recover after all efforts. Got a refund though.

    En menos de una semana llegó a España en perfectas condiciones, con dos hojas y una en camino que en una semanita ya estaba desplegada del todo; el servicio está muy bien, sin duda repetiré.

    I received a plant with 2 leaves, both healthy.

    It arrived with three leaves. The little one died soon. We got them, I think in November. Also my cat bite into the biggest leave... Now, in February 2021 I think there's a new leave coming up. Should be fine, I heard alocasia normally rest during winter.

    Such a pretty plant. Came with 3 leaves and at first looked a little sad, but a bit of water and light fixed it :) Beautiful healthy roots (except they grew through the plastic wrapping so I hope it can decmpose in time)

    Came with 3 leaves but unfortunately 1 broke during transit. That being said; the plant is super healthy and already growing a new leaf after arriving 3 days ago. I’m very happy indeed

    Looked a little wilted when it arrived, but this was early into the lock down, so there were delays with delivery. (I have made orders since and they have arrived in the UK, within around 3 days) Quickly perked up, and has since become my favourite plant. Is strong and healthy.

    Loving this little plant. It came with 3 leafs, one was curled, but it has uncurled itself after a week.

    The plant itself arrived fairly quickly and well packaged with 2 young plants. I proceeded to use some brand new potting mixture and potted them. I have not had a new plant in my room or foreign soil for at least a month before these arrived and the windows are rarely opened and are far from where the plants are kept. A week in, the plants began to decline and one of each of their leaves/stems started to decline. Upon checking, there were fungus gnats in the soil. These were only found in the new plants from PLNTS and nowhere else. It has been 3 weeks now. The gnats spread to 4 other plants and of my smaller plants. While I managed to kill them using insecticide spray on the other 4 larger plants, they managed to kill the smaller 2 through root rot (ie; eating wet roots). The two alocasia babies are very much struggling and the gnats are proving extremely hard to get rid of. One of the alocasias has died from root consumption and the other is losing its second to last leaf/stem with only the main stem remaining as green as it was when it arrived. I have alocasias before, and this decline in the plants is almost certainly down to the gnats which almost definitely seem to have arrived with the package. I'm really upset because of course it isn't just that I loved these alocasia babies and was excited to grow them, but that this unfortunate spell of bad luck has also killed a couple of my other plants. I'll definitely be ordering from PLNTS again in future as I'm sure it was just bad luck, and I'll be sure to be more cautious with new plants arriving in my space.

    Arrived in perfect condition, mine has 3 leaves. First it looked little bit sad, but watering helped a lot. It is such a cute plant!
    LindaFuskova - September 08, 2020
    plant looks exactly like on the picture. The size is nice and 3 healthy leafs. The only thing the plant is not standing but point down so hopefully it will recover soon
    Cheryl McGuigan - September 01, 2020
    Arrived well packaged and with three stems. However the smallest stem was broken upon opening but the remaining two stems have straightened and leaves have opened well, overall a very healthy plant
