Alocasia Stingray


THIS PRODUCT IS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT. Will Be Available Soon- Email Us To Backorder.

The infamous Alocasia Stingray!  This large leafed Alocasia or ‘elephant ear’ has a very special mutation- the lower half of its leaf reduces down to a thin point- almost string like.. making it look just like a sting ray.  A real conversation piece, this Alocasia performs equally well outdoors in bright light or indoors near a very sunny window.

This one can get quite large over time, with leaves up to 3 feet long or more, however it will also produce babies. If the mother plant gets too big for your liking, you can cut it down and allow the baby plants to take over.

Alocasia Stingray can be grown outdoors anywhere that has some humidity, but its best to protect it from freezing temps.  They are ground hardy here in Florida, but I try to keep them dry during the cold months to prevent rotting of the corm.  In colder climates, you can trim back and bring inside for overwintering (keep mostly dry), then place back outside when temps warm up.

I have found that Alocasia Stingray prefers alot of sun (best is about 80-85%) and likes the soil to dry out a bit before rewatering.  When in doubt, keep more on the dry side.

A healthy, well-rooted specimen in 4″ pot. Ready to be bumped up into a larger pot or planted outside.  The second photo is an example shipping plant.

Instructions for rooting and growing included.
