The Alocasia polly, also known as the African Mask Plant, is native to subtropical Asia and Australia. This plant appreciates a bright and humid environment in the home or office. Its dark green leaves are shaped like an arrowhead with highly defined silvery green veins. Though it likes bright light, the leaves can be sensitive to sunburn so its best to keep it slightly away from the window or behind a light curtain. Frequent waterings, plenty of light, and added humidity will keep your Alocasia looking its best. Alocasia are toxic to pets.
