Amazonian Elephant's Ear is a popular tropical plant, hailing from southeast Asia. It's a hybrid varietal that makes a striking and beautiful houseplant and is typically sold as such. It can be purchased, planted, and cared for year-round in an indoor environment.

Amazonian Elephant's Ear is defined by its deep green leaves, which are accentuated by whitish or light green veins. The leaves are roughly serrated, and in some cases, the leaf color appears as an almost purple-green. The plant will grow quickly, reaching a mature height of up to 2 feet. Amazonian Elephant's Ear plants rarely bloom (especially indoors), and are grown primarily for their eye-catching foliage.
