You know that Brady Bunch episode when the gang goes to Hawaii and Bobby finds an old Hawaiin Idol that brings bad luck to whoever touches it? Let's just say cultural sensitivity in the 70's wasn't what it is today. Well, Alocasia Amazonica or Tiki is kinda similar - she's not from the Amazon at all - but was created in a Florida nursery in the 50's by crossing A. longiloba and A. sanderiana. And to top it off many people feel they have been cursed by bad luck when they realize how difficult it can be to look after these plants. Oh, Tiki!
The Alocasia Amazonica is one of many species of Alocasia (almost 100 unique species!). It's commonly known as an African Mask or Elephant's Ear plant. The dark leaves with striking white veins make it a popular houseplant. Those beautiful leaves can grow to up to 40 cm in length. Alocasia thrive in bright, indirect sunlight - as much as they can get. Like a lot of tropical plants, water is important - the soil in the spring and summer should always be moist - but not soaking wet. Alocasia can be a challenging plant to care for, but when you get it right, it is incredibly rewarding!
