It’s pretty plain to see how the elephant ear plant got its name. Its great big leaves are the exact shape of, if not quite the size of, an elephant’s ears. Just as striking are its zebra-striped stems. The combination makes for an eye-catching, sculptural houseplant.

It’s found in the wild in Brazil, where it grows at the base of much larger trees. The large leaves help it make the most of all the available sunlight and also mean it can capture as much rain as possible. To keep it happy indoors, try to echo those conditions, with lots of indirect light and sufficient moisture. It will also love you if you give it a feed with liquid fertiliser once per month in spring and summer.

Humidity - Moisture in the air helps keeps leaves healthy. The best way to provide that is with regular misting.

Medium light - These big leaves like a lot of light, but not direct sun. Away from a window in a bright room is ideal.

Regular watering - likes soil to stay lightly moist. Water when top two inches of soil are dry.

If you notice leaves looking dusty, give them a gentle wipe. Dust-free leaves absorb more light.
