Aku Aku's survival guide
Aku Aku came to us fleeing from his home country of Borneo. Fleeing you ask? Yes because Aku Aku actually gets cooked and eaten in Borneo, which is a pretty legit reason to leave your home. Aku Aku will settle in just fine here, as long as you give him enough water and place him away from direct sunlight.
Our Care App will help you after your purchase.
What makes Aku Aku so special
Aku Aku is a special dude. You'll see that when you look at his leaves and stems. You'd almost say he's a cross between a zebra and an elephant. His official name is Alocasia Zebrina but some refer to him as Elephant's Ear. Aku Aku is unique in the way that the attention is always on him. In the Jungle this plant is often used as an umbrella. You'll find animals and even people huddling up together to take refuge from torrential jungle rain. Should you get a leak in the house you know what to do! Aku Aku to the rescue!
