Now here's a house plant that might be unfamiliar to you. This jungle-like beast is Alocasia sarawakensis 'Yucatan Princess' and it's a form of elephant's ears. As a house plant it can grow up to 2m tall, with a spread of up to 1.5m, depending on the container.

  • The dark leaves look rather like patent leather.
  • The leaf size is very large, with a grey-green colour on top, and milky chocolate underneath.
  • The stems are also dark, giving this plant an unusual appearance.
  • Given ideal conditions, this plant can produce flowers.
  • Water regularly but never allow the compost to remain soggy.
  • Likes a medium to bright light position indoors.
  • Keep out of direct sunlight during the hottest part of the day.
  • The plant is mildly toxic and should not be eaten. Also could be a skin and eye irritant.
  • Currently growing in a 17cm pot.
