Alocasia macrorrhiza Stingray


With one look it wont be hard to deduce why its most common name is Elephant Ear Stingray. While the leaves are not as large as the more common elephant ear plant, it can still boast growth to a decent size in the right conditions. The distinctive “tail” combined with the “wings” looks very much like a stingray. The plant originates in Southeast Asia. It is relatively easy to look after.


Light – Bright Indirect Sunlight

Humidity – High- Mist occasionally-  if you see brown on the ends, you are misting too much. Temperature 18-22 oC is ideal. Not a fan of draughts.

Watering – Water regularly enough to ensure consistently moist, but do not let roots rest in water. Water with room temperature water ideally.

Care –The plant grows actively in spring through summer and a bit of fertilizer is always welcome to boost growth and ensure a happy plant. An all-purpose organic or liquid fertilizer will help the plant and give it the nutrients it needs. If the plant is in a perfect warm and bright setting it will grow vigorously and therefore need more nutrients.
