Hi, my name is Lola!
The experts also call me the Alocasia Lauterbachiana. I steal the show with my beautiful, elongated leaves. Have you seen the red underside of my leaves? Beautiful isn't it? I'm also called an Elephant's Ear, maybe that sounds familiar to you too. With me, you get a real eye-catcher in your home!
I am originally from the southern parts of Asia. Here it is nice and warm and I can grow several meters tall! Around here I am also used as an umbrella in rainstorms, thanks to my large leaves. Underneath, people can take shelter very well. Remarkable, isn't it?
Where should you place me?
You can easily make me happy by placing me in a nice, bright spot. Be careful with direct sunlight, because it can be too bright.
What do I like?
I love a regular sip of lukewarm water! Be careful not to give too much, because I do not like this very much. You may also give me some fertilizer twice a month during the growing season.
Plantanious works together with the Work with Nature foundation. Our tropical rainforests are disappearing at a rapid pace and an enormous biodiversity is being lost along with the trees. If it were up to us, the jaguar would soon walk around again in the rainforest in Costa Rica protected by 'Adopt Rainforest'! The place where many of our special plants originate. In order to make an important contribution to the goal of the foundation - to protect 2,000 hectares of rainforest in the next ten years - we donate part of our turnover to protect part of the tropical rainforest. To achieve their goal, the foundation puts money into protection, conservation, reforestation, education and research.
