Hi, I'm Macy.
My Latin name is Alocasia Macrorrhiza, but you probably know me as the Elephant Ear. I have big leaves, and with these I totally brighten up my surroundings. These large leaves also make me very trendy. I am indispensable in your home!
I have flown over from the southern parts of Asia, where I come from the tropical rain forests. Here I can grow several meters tall! Here they find me very useful, as I am used here as a shelter from the rain! With my large leaves, I am extremely suitable for this.
Where should you place me?
Do you want to make me happy? Then put me in a bright spot! Avoid direct sunlight as I don't like this as much.
What do I like?
A regular sip of lukewarm water is most welcome, but be careful not to give too 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.
