Tiger Elephant’s Ear
Alocasia zebrine or tiger Elephant’s Ear. This plant has exotic striping on its stilt-like stalks that add pizazz to any collection.
Instead of ornamental flowers or foliage, the Alocasia zebrina is mainly prized for its stems. Over collection in the wild made the plant rare and costly after its introduction, but tissue culture has made it more widely available.
