- Grown, packaged and shipped exclusively by Wekiva Foliage. The Alocasia ‘Sumo’ is a hybrid between the Alocasia ‘Portora’ and Alocasia princess ‘Purple Cloak’. It has the size of a ‘Portora’ and the thinner, colorful, and pointed leaves of a ‘Purple Cloak’.
- Big and bold, Elephant Ear ‘Sumo’ makes a dynamic statement in a large pot or as a landscape specimen. This easy grower reaches 5-6’ the first year and 8-10’ tall by the second year. The dark, upward-pointing, green leaves are huge – up to 3-4’ long when fully mature – and they reach 2.5’ across.
- The Alocasia ‘Sumo’ thrives best in bright indirect sunlight, a well-draining soil mix, temperatures between 65 and 75ºF (18 and 24ºC), and preferably higher humidity levels (at least 70%) but normal room humidity will also do. It only needs to be watered when to top 2 inches of the soil are dry.
- The amount of water the ‘Elephant Ear’ Alocasia needs depends on the temperature that it is staying in and the amount of sunlight it receives. Higher temperatures and more sun will make the Alocasia thirstier. For example, during the hot summer months, the plant needs more water than during the colder winter months.
- The Alocasia ‘Sumo’ will grow best in medium to bright indirect sunlight but can also tolerate a couple of hours of morning sun or dappled direct sunlight. However, avoid too much direct sunlight because this will burn the leaves and make them crispy brown.

"Came in perfect condition--thank you!"
"Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."
"This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"
"Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"
"This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
