Plant Care Guide: Baby Amazonian Elephant Ear

Baby Amazonian Elephant Ear // Alocasia lowii Amazonica 'Bambino'

This little plant pal is all about the drama with those dark, glossy green leaves and bold white veins. Avoid overwatering to keep this princess happy - she's not a fan of wet roots. A lover of humidity, she'll also appreciate a regular misting of the leaves.

Love notes

Keep your plant pal nourished and supported with a good quality plant food like We The Wild Grow Concentrate and We The Wild Support Pellets. These powerful plant essentials will keep your plants happy, strong and resilient, and will reward you with new growth a'plenty! 
These beauties thrive in humid conditions, so you can give them a mist every so often, and don't forget to wipe down those leaves when they're looking a little dusty. You can also spray with We The Wild Protect Spray every couple of weeks to keep leaves looking lush and healthy. 
Follow the recommended advise on watering above - if unsure, a Moisture Meter could be your secret weapon! This handy tool will show you exactly how dry your soil is to avoid any over or under watering fails. 
To ensure your new bestie gets enough drainage, we recommend keeping them in a nursery pot and displaying in a cover pot. If you do want to pot up your plant, make sure your decorative pot has a drainage hole and you've removed the plug. 
Baby Amazonian Elephant Ear's can be a little fussy on the watering side, preferring things not too wet and not too dry. So be sure not to let her dry out completely or those leaf tips could start to brown, as well as checking the water has thoroughly drained after each watering.
