The Alocasia Morocco or Safari Morocco aka Alocasia Imperial Red is a Ivory Coast native sporting deep green leaves with a distinctive slender tip. Wild and unusual, this tropical beauty stands on uniquely bright red or pink stems. As a member of the Araceae family, this exotic Elephant Ear plant is widely cultivated in many tropical regions of the world with humid climates. Elephant ears can reach a large size fairly quickly and will create a bold focal point in your home.
Thrives in medium to bright indirect light. Keep away from direct sunlight to prevent burning. Dark corners should also be avoided. Several feet from a southwestern or southeastern exposure is best.
Water 1 or 2 a week. The Morocco loves consistent moisture at the roots. Take care to allow the top 2" -3" to dry between waterings. Requires a very humid environment and above-average home humidity levels.
