This Statuesque Stunner Makes a Bold Visual Statement

The Elephant Ear or Alocasia Regal Shields is one of our most popular plants –with good reason. Its large, textural leaves conjure up the tropics in one quick glance. Plant lovers admire its dark green topside and purple underside that’s accented with lime green veins. Alocasia ‘Regal Shields’ was hybridized in South Florida and patented in the USA.

Native to Africa, the Alocasia species in general can grow between 5 and 6 feet tall. Outdoors, the plant is wind-resistant, and prefers indirect sun and moist soil. It’s a great choice for a balcony or terrace. Indoors, make sure to keep the plant away from an AC or heating vent, as it dislikes constant changes of temperatures.

    I ordered 6 plants and 5/6 were extremely well acclimated into my home. This one has some burnt leaves and some discoloration on the leaves. After a couple of days, I moved it into a room with more filtered sunlight… so this could be a ‘me’ problem and it’s not all of them. I think this plant is just a little particular and needs the right spot. We’ll see! Overall, I checked out 5 different websites offering plant delivery and PlantVine had the best prices and a fantastic selection!

    Looks beautiful and I love that I got to see the particular plant I was getting as it was being prepped to ship. Arrived a little worse for wear with a few damaged leaves/stems so I’ve removed them and hoping it flourishes in my living room.

    I absolutely love this plant!!!!
    It was delivered to me in perfect condition and health and has accumulated to my home perfectly! I highly recommend purchasing this plant 🙂

    Nicely packaged to protect the plant and generally speaking the plant is in decent shape. One of the leaves is torn and the plant is smaller than expected, but all in all, I’m satisfied with my purchase. This was my first time purchasing from Plantvine, so I was testing the waters. I just received the plants this week so I will see how they fair, but I anticipate shopping again at Plantvine.

I absolutely love the size of the leaves on this plant! I can't wait to turn my deck into a tropical retreat this summer.

I love the dark matte finish of this plant! It's so regal!
