Alocasia Maharani, also known as Alocasia Elephant Ear or Alocasia Grey Dragon, has heavily textured, stiff leaves with intricate veins. This rare plant is part of the Dragon Alocasia family which is telling by its growth habit that makes the tops of the leaves feel and look like scales. This is a very fast-growing plant and is very impressive fully grown. As the plants grow larger, the back of the leaves starts to turn a reddish color. Alocasia Maharani is tropical so it prefers warm, humid environments. To increase the humidity, you can use a humidifier, mist the plants leaves or keep it in your bathroom (as long as there is enough light).
