Elephant's Ear (Zebrina)

From £22

My piercing arrow-shaped leaves supported on my zebra-patterned striped stems are sure to grab attention.

I can be slightly demanding to keep looking at my finest, so I am a great plant when you are ready to step up your plant game!

To see me at my best

I like hot and steamy - somewhere bright in a kitchen or bathroom would be perfect; if those won't do that's fine just make sure to mist me regularly!

The table gives a guide to the size of this plant and how it will fit into your space. Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.

How to look after me

  • Light


    I'm a bit of a sun worshipper, but keep me out of direct summer sunshine which can scorch my leaves.

  • Water


    Keep my soil moist but not wet at all times; make sure to water me less frequently in winter.

  • Food


    Feed me once a month in spring and summer.

  • Climate


    Mist me frequently!

  • Other Maintentance


    If I look like I need perking up, try giving me warm distilled, filtered or rain-water.

Things to look out for

  • Look Out

    Plant dying back

    In winter your plant will go into dormancy; if it is not winter though and your plant is dying back check location, light and watering.
  • Look Out

    Brown, crispy leaves

    Potentially hard water is causing problems or humidity is too low.
  • Look Out

    Wilting plant

    Check compost and aim for moist not wet soil, make sure there is no root rot.
