Elliott, the Alocasia sarian
Meet Elliott! He’s a Ferris wheel aficionado. A pushover for the breathtaking views of the city skyline and the thrill of dangling perilously in the air, he thinks amusement parks are, frankly, wasted on the young. By our age, we should celebrate finally being allowed to go on the highest rides without having to promise to do extra chores later. Looking for a new date experience? Elliott says think vertical– find the nearest Ferris Wheel and maybe, just maybe, fall in love…
We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.
This plant ships as a 1″ fully rooted starter plant, as shown in the second photo. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included.
If you order multiple plants, we put them together in one pot so they stay moist and insulated. If you think we haven’t sent the full order, please take out the plants from the pot first to count them.
- Likes regular water, somewhat drought tolerant, never let the bottom of the pot sit in water! If leaves are turning yellow and falling off, it’s likely over-watered.
- Grows best in medium to bright indirect light. Rotate plant every week or two to keep it growing straight and upright.
- Wipe leaves with a damp cloth when they become dusty.
- Toxic to pets and humans.
- Skill Level: Beginner
