Pippa, an Alocasia Polly, Alocasia Amazonia, or Elephant’s Ear, is one of the most striking houseplants out there! She has dark green leaves with silver-white veins that almost look like a bolt of lightening, and each leaf can grow to more than 30cm in length!


As her name suggests Pippa is native to the rainforests of South America, which means she’s more partial to swamp like conditions – make sure you don’t let her dry out or she might not forgive you!

Pippa, Alocasia Polly - Large

  • Pippa prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.

    If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:

    • Minimal shadow = lower light
    • Half shadow = indirect light
    • Full shadow = direct sun

Plant care basics


Place your plants in a spot where they'll thrive & not just where they'll look good - you won't regret it!


Stick your finger 2 inches into your plants soil, and if it's dry give it a drink - if not, hold off on the water.


Plants get hungry too! In spring & summer feed your plants every 2-4 weeks! Back off during Autumn & Winter.
