The Alocasia Zebrina owes its name to the special zebra print on his stems. The extraordinary stems in combination with its beautiful green leaves are characteristic of the Alocasia Zebrina. The lovely heart-shaped leaves also call to mind the floppy ears of an elephant. For that reason the plant is also called ‘ Elephantsear ‘ or ‘ Giant taro ‘. The Zebrina is a tropical houseplant that originally comes from Asia

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.

    I’ve got a healthy and strong patterned three-leafed plant. Currently the leaves are pointing downwards (I guess it’s due the transport). Thank you for the fast shipping.

  2. Ellie

    Such a cute plant! This little baby has lovely markings already, I can’t wait to watch him grow

  3. Maja

    I ordered two of these, both are healthy and beautiful, looks exactly like the picture. when it arrived the leaves + stem were hanging downwards a little, I watered it and the next morning everything was okay, so don’t worry if your plant arrives like this (bc I did 😀 )

  4. Jurgita Raudonytė

    I got it smaller than expected – in the picture it has 3 and 4 leaves, while mine had just 2. It would not be a problem on itself, but the bigger leave broke off during shipping and the one that left is still tiny and uncurling…

  5. Simona

    Wow. The plant looks great and came with 3 leaves, 1 of them dead but the last 2 are really beautiful. A good size for S. And well packed.

    Really impressed with the safe packaging! Mine came with 2 gorgeous leaves, and as the others mentioned, were drooping when they arrived and just looked a little bit sad. However, the next day (after some water and repotting), it looks better already!

  7. Veronica Dan

    This baby arrived extremely safe and now, after 2 months is already twice and looking stunning!! ❤️

  8. Jhoanna Lindgren

    Really beautiful plant, sadly we had trouble with the delivery parcel and this one came really sad, still struggling. Emma offered refund, thanks.

    Beautiful and healthy plant. And already giving out a new leaf. Will definitely busy again from this seller.

    It arrived in excellent condition!!

    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

    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

  13. alexandra

    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!

    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.

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

  19. Gwynoe (verified owner)

    came a bit shocked but survived

  20. Stacey Henry

    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.

  21. Rieksma (verified owner)

    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

  22. Elen (verified owner)

    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)
