Description
Our small Elephant's Ear houseplant, known as Alocasia X amazonica "Poly", is a small striking plant with large patterned leaves.  Alocasia species are a group of aroids from the tropics of Asia and Eastern Australia, often noted for their dramatic foliage, sometimes richly patterned. Poly has beautiful silvery-white veins on its dramatic dark green, arrow-shaped leaves, which can grow up to 30cm long.   The undersides of the leaves are a deep red colour and they are help aloft by fleshy pale green stems.

The variety "Poly" (not "Polly" - it was named after is supposed polyploidal chromosome number, not the girl's name) is a hybrid of Alocasia longiloba and Alocasia sanderiana, which was developed in the 1950s from a selection of an earlier type called Alocasia Amazonica. This was bred by Salvadore Mauro - a postman and nursery owner from Florida - who named the plant after his Amazonica Nursery business. No Alocasias grow wild anywhere in the Amazon, so its name is rather misleading.
