This Elephant Ear is a very rare plant seldom seen in the wild. Very narrow foliage with a blue to green coloration in an odd pattern. It has elongated leaves with a patterned coloration and tiger-colored stems that you won't find in other Alocasias. This variety makes a great houseplant thanks to its manageable size. For coloration development, give it a little time to grow up. Elephant ears' attributes become even more defined when they mature.
A few years ago plants were selling as high as 150.00 for small starts. That was if you could find a grower and get on the waiting list for a start of this rare and unusual plant. The foliage is very narrow and sharply arrowhead or hastate shaped. Each leaf is a dark blue-green with an odd coloration effect commonly called reticulated. The foliage looks like the reflection of light off of water. This is an extremely unusual feature for any plant. With green and brown striped petioles. The plant can grow 3 to 5 feet tall in ideal conditions.
