Medium Alocasia Polly

Sale price$30.00

The Alocasia Polly is a hybrid and can grow about two and a half feet tall and wide when at its medium size. The plant is a hybrid of the Alocasia longiloba and Alocasia sanderiana and is commonly incorrectly referred to as the Alocasia x amazonica. The plant has brown stems and deep green leaves highlighted by thick white veins that go through the middle and around the leaves in a winding fashion.

Shields, Arrows, and Elephant Ears

Our customers love the odd shapes and sizes that develop from the medium Alocasia Polly leaves. The leaf’s striking Sacramento hues, lime accents, and deep, purple undertones paired together with the long, pointed, wavy shape give them the appearance of an arrowhead or shield. Still, others think the leaves resemble elephant ears, sometimes dubbing the Alocasia the Elephant Ear plant. Another name based on the unique leaf-shape is the African Mask.

Thrives in Tropical Conditions

Native to the subtropics of Asia and Australia, Polly loves warmer temps and thrives in temperatures of between 60- and 80-degrees Fahrenheit. When continually exposed to lower temperatures, the plant may grow dormant and lose some or all of its leaves. Keep the plant away from drafts to promote efficient growth. Under optimal humid conditions during the warmer months of the year, your alocasia may bud a new leaf each week.


This Maroon-hued beauty was once primarily known as the Alocasia Amazonica until a smaller version of it was found. This version was then dubbed ‘Poly’ until it grew in popularity and commercial value and was changed to ‘Polly’ for marketing purposes.
