Botanical name: Alocasia wentii
Common name: Went’s alocasia, hardy or cold tolerant elephant ear, New Guinea shield
Toxicity: toxic to pets, humans if ingested — insoluble calcium oxalate crystals.
Native range: New Guinea
Most suitable location: East facing window is most suitable, alternatively 1.5-2m from a north facing window, south facing window can be tolerated but not optimum
NOTES: This alocasia is cold hardy down to -17°C, meaning it doesn’t have a dormancy period over winter, even in Victoria. But it prefers to be on the drier side during these times.
