Max our Giant Elephant's Ear, also known as the Giant Taro or botanically known as Alocasia Macrorrhiza, is a handsome, bold and totally confident houseplant that'll be sure to make a visual impact in your home.

His foliage resembles an elephant's ear due to his prominently veined, thick green leaves which grow super tall on rigid stalks that flaunt vertically to be noticed. Place Max in part-shade away from harsh sunlight otherwise his foliage my burn and brown. Water Max regularly, every five to ten days will do.

Fun Fact: Max is native to the beautiful tropical regions in Sri Lanka and India.
